A Westport woman was charged last week with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident in January.

Jill Mulligan, 54, of Edgewater Commons, faces a charge of evading responsibility after turning herself in to police on a warrant Thursday morning.

Police said Mulligan's vehicle struck fencing on Hillspoint Road last Jan. 29 and then left.

She was released after posting a $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear April 7 in Norwalk Superior Court.
