SANFORD, Fla. – Police announced Monday that an arrest was made in connection with a hit-and-run crash that left a man seriously injured on Dec. 3.

Sanford Police Department officials said officers responded to the crash just south of the intersection at French Avenue and 25th Street just after 8 p.m.

Police determined a man was trying to cross French Avenue when a vehicle struck him and didn’t stop. He was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries.

Investigators said they learned through witness statements that Jenna Cetto, 25, was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash. After striking the pedestrian, she didn’t stop because she didn’t have a valid driver’s license, and may have had illegal substances in the vehicle, according to police.

Cetto was taken to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.

Anyone with information regarding the crash is asked to contact police at 800-423-8477.
