Three-year-old Annabelle Ruth was hit and her family said Friday she is in critical but stable condition at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Renee Velazquez said she has known Frame for ten years.

"You don't get behind a wheel unless you have a license. She knew she didn't have a license," said Velazquez.

"She hasn't had a license since I've known her. To take off after hitting a child is totally upsetting," she added.

Frame is being held in the Lehigh County Prison with $50,000 bond.
