    The 30-year-old victim was thrown approximately 50 feet. She suffered serious injuries and was taken to Lawrence General Hospital. The woman, who has not been identified, was later transferred to Beth Israel Hospital in Boston where she was undergoing surgery for her injuries.

    Authorities say Quiceno fled the scene in a black motor vehicle after hitting the victim. Massachusetts State Police quickly located the suspect at the intersection of East Haverhill and Vine streets.
