GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A University of Florida student was killed when a woman drove over a curb, hit him with her vehicle and failed to stop.

The Florida Highway Patrol says in a statement that Karan Khullar, a 22-year-old student from India, was killed after being hit by the car Saturday at a bus stop outside a Gainesville apartment complex.

Two others also were hit but don't have life-threatening injuries.

Damaris Guerrero Garcia was later arrested in a neighboring county and is facing charges of driving-under-the-influence manslaughter, DUI with injury and leaving the scene of a crash involving death.

Authorities say she consented to a breath test and it was above the legal limit for what is considered impaired.

She was being held in jail and couldn't be reached for comment.
