An 81-year-old nun from New Hampshire was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run accident last month.

Sister Rachael Dumont of Atkinson is charged with conduct after an accident, according to The Eagle-Tribune. Plaistow Police told the newspaper that she turned herself in on Tuesday. She is free on $1,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on April 4.

The accident occurred on Dec. 16 in the Kohl's parking lot, police said. Dumont struck a vehicle driven by a 50-year-old woman and drove off before the other driver could get her information. No one was seriously injured.
