Isa Uzan has been charged in a Manchester hit-and-run that badly injured a woman.

A 41-year-old woman was critically injured in a hit-and-run in Manchester on Monday night and police have charged a Bristol man.

Isa Uzan, 41, is accused of hitting Maura Holmes, 40, of Manchester, near Center and Adams streets around 10 p.m. and leaving the scene before police arrived.

Police found Holmes on the ground in front of 685 Center Street with serious injuries and had her transported to Saint Francis Hospital, where she was in critical condition as of Monday night. No information was released on Tuesday afternoon about her current condition. 

Uzan turned himself in to Manchester Police just before midnight and admitted he had been traveling west on Center Street when his vehicle hit the woman, police said.

Police found his damaged car in Bristol and checked Department of Motor Vehicles records, which indicate that his driving privileges have been suspected.

He was charged with evading responsibility and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, according to police.

Investigators say it does not appear that Uzan was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

He is being held on $50,000 bond and is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday in Manchester Superior Court.

Police ask anyone with information to call 860-645-5560.
