A driver accused of hitting and killing a woman on the Burnside Bridge changed her plea in court Monday.

Kemisha Anderson pleaded guilty to felony hit and run and DUII.

Police arrested her six hours after she reportedly hit and killed Ida "Dawn" Lynd, 44, at 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 29, 2012. 

Officers said Anderson hit Lynd midspan on the bridge. Lynd's family said she battled drug addiction for years and had been sleeping on the bridge.

She originally pleaded not guilty to the charges and was set to face trial starting Tuesday.

Anderson was sentenced to 10 days in jail, with credit for time already served, along with three years supervised probation and 184 hours of community service.
