Matthew J. DeGregory, 29, of Route 40 South, was subsequently charged with leaving the scene of a serious personal injury accident, a felony.

The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office said the 26-year-old female was standing in a residential driveway near the road when she was hit around 2 a.m.

The woman was treated at the scene and transported to Albany Medical Center. As of Sunday afternoon, she was in serious condition.

DeGregory was brought before Saratoga Town Justice David Mathis, who arraigned DeGregory and set bail at $500 cash, or $1,000 bail bond.

DeGregory was remanded to Saratoga County Jail.
