    Philadelphia Police

    The teen driver who fled the scene after hitting a Temple University student has pleaded guilty to all charges.

    18-year-old Rashan Roberts waived his preliminary hearing back in May and admitted guilt in court Thursday.

    Roberts only had his learner's permit when he ran over 22-year-old Rachel Hall who was riding her bicycle near Temple University on April 29. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.

    Roberts surrendered to police May 6 after his parents contacted authorities and told them their son was driving the 2012 Mitsubishi Gallant that hit Hall.

    Hall, a star Temple lacrosse player, was critically injured and continues to recover in a rehab facility.

    Family and friends have set up a website to accept donations to help with her care.

    Sentencing for Roberts is schedule for October 13th.
