SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The woman accused of striking an Agawam teenager with her car, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down, was in court Monday morning.

A hearing to discuss evidence in the case against Jomaris Colon of Agawam was scheduled at Hampden Superior Court in Springfield Monday, but the hearing turned out to be very brief, only lasting for about a minute.

Colon is expected to enter a guilty plea at her next court date on July 25th. No word on what the settlement arrangement will be.

On March 16, 2015, Colon allegedly drove away after hitting 16 year-old Alex Scafuri as the teen was skateboarding on Springfield Street. Scafuri had to undergo months of treatment at an Atlanta specialty hospital before he was able to return home.

Colon is charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury, and driving without a license.

Back in November, a judge revoked her bail and ordered her to return to jail for 90 days for not taking a required sobriety test.
