Police have arrested a 20-year-old woman suspected in a hit-and-run collision that injured an elderly woman and a toddler last week in San Jose's Berryessa neighborhood.

The grandmother was pushing a 3-year-old child in a stroller in a marked crosswalk about 5:40 p.m. Oct. 25, when they were hit by a car on Sierra Road near Mauna Kea Lane, according to San Jose police.

Both were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Two days later, a resident reported seeing a vehicle similar to one described in a police press release, a newer, dark gray four-door hatchback.

Officers located the car at a San Jose home and found Alexa Hadjilatiph, who allegedly admitted to being the driver of the vehicle involved in collision, according to police.

Hadjilatiph, a resident of San Jose, was taken into custody on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail. She has since been released on bail.

Anyone with information on the collision is asked to contact Detective Aldinger #4183 of the San Jose Police Department's Traffic Investigations Unit at or call (408) 277-4654.
