Prosecutors say a southern New Jersey woman faces up to 10 years in prison after she admitted being the driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident last year.

Twenty-five-year-old Elisha Pollosco of Berlin pleaded guilty this week to knowingly leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.

Pollosco said she was driving a car that struck 25-year-old Binh Tsan of Runnemede and Tsan's fiance as the couple tried to cross Route 70 in Cherry Hill in September.

Tsan died three days later from her injuries. Her fiance was seriously injured but has since recovered.

Pollosco drove off after the accident and later that day parked her car in the garage at her sister's home hours. Pollosco also tried to disguise the vehicle, but was arrested eight days later.
