A Keys woman who was just in court on a drunk-driving charge remains jailed after police say she drove away after striking a pedestrian in another incident.
Amber Krabbe, 37, faces a felony charge of hit-and-run without causing serious injury, which carries up to five years in prison if convicted.
Alcohol was not a factor, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. But the man hit by the left bumper of the car Krabbe was driving was drinking a beer while pushing his bicycle across Second Street on Stock Island at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
John Piraino, 63, of Stock Island was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami for observation after suffering minor injuries, according to the FHP. An unidentified witness followed Krabbe’s 2005 Chevrolet Aveo to her house nearby on Second Street and kept her there while police were called.

Krabbe, a bartender, was still locked up Friday afternoon at the county jail in lieu of $5,000 bond.
Krabbe had just gotten finished with a criminal case without jail time.
On April 15, her January drunk-driving case was resolved with Monroe County Judge Wayne Miller giving her a year of probation, a $500 fine and ordering a number of conditions, including giving up her driver’s license for six months.
