Her SUV struck 35-year-old Kenney Cooper who was thrown 60 feet and landed in the grass.
Police say Borcherdt drove off. Witnesses told police where she headed, and officers found her in a college parking lot.
Cooper was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Borcherdt is charged with vehicular assault, driving under the influence and multiple traffic offenses.
