A Connecticut woman accused in a hit-and-run crash that injured boy in Charlestown has had her license suspended for a year.

Adriana Wright, 42, of North Stonington, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving and refusing a breath test.

She initially pleaded not guilty to felony charges of leaving the scene of a accident and driving to endanger. But Charlestown police said the case would have been too difficult to prove in court.

Wright was accused of striking the teenage son of a police officer who was walking to a convenience store on Route 2 in Charlestown on Dec. 27. The boy suffered a concussion.

Wright was on administrative leave from her job as a Spanish teacher at The Prout School in Wakefield.
