The Facebook page will share with the public details on Emily Bowman's hospital stay and recovery.

A Facebook page has been created for the Woodstock teenager who remains in critical condition after she was critically injured in a hit-and-run in Athens over the weekend.

Bows For Bowman already has over 2,500 fans and has asked everyone to pray for the teenager.

Emily Bowman, 19, a Kennesaw State University student, was in Athens to attend a friend's birthday party. As she walked with a companion on the grassy shoulder of Oak Street just after 3 a.m. Saturday, a pickup truck hit her and fled the scene.

She remains in a coma at Athens Regional Medical Center, where she was taken after the incident.

Charges are expected to be filed any day now, according to a story in the Athens Banner-Herald

Furthermore, police found a bottle of liquor inside the red Mazda pick-up truck, the story says, and empty beer cans in the truck bed.

That pick-up truck, the Athens-Clarke County Police Department has discovered, is registered to a man in Cartersville. 

The story also notes police have collected evidence at the home of the suspect's mother, who lives in Watkinsville, and his father, who resides in Lawrenceville. 

The man's parents have hired an attorney in connection to the incident.
