FOX 5 has learned that the Kennesaw State Student badly hurt by a hit-and-run driver is improving.

On a Facebook page tracking her recovery, friends of Emily Bowman say she is showing progress.

"The doctor said her eyes are where they want them to be; her pupils are equal in size. The swelling has decreased tremendously, it gives us so much hope seeing some sort of progress," the post reads.

A truck hit the 19-year-old as she was walking in the grass along Oak Street in Athens on Sunday morning.

Police have identified a 22-year-old suspect.

A fund to help pay for Bowman's medical bills has been set up at Wells Fargo Bank.  The name of the account is Emily Taylor Bowman's Medical Bills Fund.
