The woman severely injured in a hit-and-run collision on Sunday, Oct. 25, has been identified as 33-year-old Scottsdale Cocopah Middle School teacher, Maureen Brown, according to officials.

In an effort to obtain additional suspect information, a $20,000 reward is being offered through Silent Witness.

Ms. Brown was crossing 124th Street at Sahuaro Drive to attend a “trunk or treat” event at the McDowell Mountain Community Church when she was struck by a vehicle. Officials say she has been at HonorHealth Osborn Medical Center since the accident, and has had over 10 major surgeries to repair her body.

She remains in critical condition.

The Brown family and the Scottsdale Police Department are hopeful that telling Maureen’s story will trigger someone with information to come forward, according to a press release.

Police say the car is described as a black four-door sedan. It will have damage to the front, hood and windshield area of the car.

Anyone with information on this case are encouraged to contact the Scottsdale Police Department at 480-312-9093.
