Prosecutors say Andre Jones Taylor was arrested Thursday by detectives tracking down a partial license number provided by the woman. She was hit Feb. 17 as she was walking home from the graveyard shift at a restaurant.
Police say she screamed when the driver tried to pick her up. A passer-by intervened, and the driver fled.
The woman remains hospitalized with broken bones.
Taylor is a convicted rapist. He faces at least 24 years in prison if convicted of the latest charges.
