PITTSFIELD -- Police say a city woman has turned herself in to law enforcement officials in connection with an alleged hit-and-run accident that left a New York motorcyclist injured.

The Pittsfield Police said 22-year-old Kelly N. McAllister came to police headquarters at about 1 p.m. on Wednesday and admitted she was driving the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that was involved in an April 28 accident with a motorcycle.

According to Police Capt. John Mullin, McAllister was not arrested and will be summonsed in to court to face charges at a later date. Police said she will be charged with driving with an expired license and leaving the scene of a personal injury motor vehicle accident.

The Sunday accident on the corner of Linden and John streets left Brad Humphrey, 58, of Stephentown, N.Y., with severe injuries, police said at the time. He was driving a 1968 Harley-Davidson. Police said the Jeep struck the motorcycle at about 4:30 p.m. that day and kept going.

Humphrey is recovering from his injuries, which are said to be not life-threatening, at Berkshire Medical Center, according to police.
