A hit-and-run driver who killed a woman on a southern New Jersey highway last year and seriously injured her fiancée has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

Twenty-five-year-old Elisha Pollosco of Berlin pleaded guilty in January to knowingly leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. She also received a four-year sentence for violating probation, and the two terms imposed Friday will be served concurrently.

Pollosco was driving a car that struck 25-year-old Binh Tsan of Runnemede and Tsan's fiance as they tried to cross Route 70 in Cherry Hill in September. Tsan died three days later.

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