(KNZA)--A Manhattan man has been charged in connection with a hit-and-run in April that left a Horton woman seriously injured.

The Topeka Capital Journal reports 21-year-old Nicholas Blaha turned himself in to Riley County authorities Monday afternoon on a warrant for aggravated battery.

Blaha was identified as the driver of a pickup truck that struck 21-year-old Kansas State University student Amber Wilhelm early April 14th at the intersection of 12th and Bluemont, in Manahttan.

Riley County Police say their investigation revealed Wilhelm has stopped in the crosswalk and was bent over when she was struck by Blaha, who was traveling westbound on Bluemont Avenue.

Police wrapped up their investigation in May and forwarded their reports to the Riley County District Attorney's Office for review to determine whether charges should be filed.

Blaha is currently free on $20,000 bond and is due in court August 21st.
