ST. ALBANS, Vermont — A Vermont driver accused of striking a pedestrian and not stopping has been ordered held without bail.

Twenty-three-year-old Tyler Benjamin appeared in court in St. Albans on Tuesday.

Authorities say 54-year-old John Hemmond remains in critical condition following the accident the night of Jan. 15 on Lake Street. Police say the impact sent Hemmond into the air; he landed on the hood before falling off.

The St. Albans Messenger reports ( Benjamin was facing charges from two incidents in the fall including a driving under the influence charge and driving with a suspended license. His conditions of release on those charges prohibited him driving any motor vehicle.

Benjamin's lawyer sought to have him released, so he could be put in a residential drug treatment program; a judge denied that.
