Police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who put a woman in the hospital early Wednesday morning.

While investigators know the victim was hit by a vehicle, they are not sure if the woman was walking at the time or was already down in the street.

One witness told officers the woman had been running around in the street, possibly trying to get hit. No other witnesses stayed to talk to police.

Emergency crews arrived on the scene at 67th Avenue and Roosevelt Street, which is south of Interstate 10, shortly after midnight to find the woman in the roadway. She had some broken bones, as well as internal injuries.

The woman, who is believed to be between 30 and 40 years old, was reportedly conscious when she was taken to the hospital, but not responsive.

The intersection was closed while police conducted the on-scene portion of their investigation. It has since reopened.Investigators do not have any information about the vehicle that hit the woman, nor do they know anything about who was behind the wheel of that vehicle.
