TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police say the woman who has caused multiple hit-and-run collisions, including the one on Pantano and Stella on Thursday, July 27, has been released from the hospital.

The Tucson Police Department said 32-year-old Erin Eman was arrested and booked into the Pima County Jail on four different felony charges.

Eman is being charged with aggravated DUI, aggravated assault, aggravated assault with a dangerous instrument and felony criminal damage.

Police say additional charges are pending.

On Thursday, police said Eman caused the crash at the east-side intersection of Pantano and Stella Road, that closed the area for several hours.

Eman has been connected to four other hit-and-run crashes, according to the Tucson Police Department.  

Witnesses of the crash at Pantano and Stella said a black SUV ran a red light and hit another SUV that had the green light.  

According to TPD, the woman who allegedly caused the crash had no right front tire on her vehicle and was driving with a license that had been suspended for a prior DUI.  

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries, while the driver at fault had non-life-threatening injuries. Officers at the scene, who spoke with the driver at fault, noticed alleged signs of impairment.  

It was during the investigation into the Pantano and Stella crash that officers learned there were four hit and runs nearby that occurred just before the crash. Officers soon connected the driver at fault to the four additional crashes.

According to TPD, the driver allegedly hit one car at Houghton and Irvington, two cars at Houghton and Rillito, another car at Houghton and Mary Ann Cleveland, and one more car at Kolb and Valencia before hitting the white SUV at Pantano and Stella. 

No one was hurt in the previous hit and runs, according to TPD.
