NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV) - Police in northeast Nebraska say a man was arrested for colliding with a vehicle and leaving the scene of the accident.

A female driver of a 2010 Dodge Journey was hit by a man driving a green Pontiac in Norfolk, Nebraska Thursday morning. Police say the accident occurred on Glenwood Blvd in Central Norfolk. Following the accident, the driver of the Pontiac allegedly fled the scene without assisting the female driver.

The man was identified as 41-year-old Efren Ignacio-Casmiro of Norfolk. According to police, the registered owner of the Pontiac was a neighbor who loaned the car to Ignacio-Casmiro.

Ignacio-Casmiro was eventually located and put under arrest for not stopping to assist with the scene and is cited for driving without a license and failure to yield the right of way.

The driver of the Journey was transported to Faith Regional Hospital. Her condition and identification have not been released at this time.
