Police later added that they have a man in custody in connection with the incident, and that the pedestrians hit were not in the roadway at the time of the crash.
According to the Rochester Police Department, 29-year-old Rochester resident Chermasia C. Collins was traveling east on Lyell Avenue early Saturday at a high rate of speed when she lost control, jumped a curb, and struck two victims who were standing on the sidewalk.
In court Wednesday, Judge Christopher Ciaccio agreed to a request by the prosecution to suspend Collins' driver's license privileges based on the charges against her.
