Lincoln hit-and-run driver has been found, citations pending

LINCOLN, Nebr. -- An update to an accident report shows that officers have contacted the driver of a vehicle who reportedly hit and struck a woman lighting fireworks on Saturday night. The report shows the driver was distracted at the time of the incident, and citations are pending. 

The state of Nebraska investigator's motor vehicle crash report says the driver said she was unaware of striking a pedestrian. 

The accident report shows she was also distracted by something that was not a cell phone. It is unclear if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the incident. 

The victim was hit Saturday night near northwest 6th Street and Dawes Avenue while lighting a firework. 

She was left with a broken collar bone, a concussion, as well as dozens of scrapes and bruises that cover her body.
