ELKO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Elko Police Department is looking for a woman they say hit a pedestrian Wednesday night.

The man described the car that hit him as silver, possibly a Nissan Sentra or a Honda Civic, being driven by a woman who stopped and asked him if he was ok before driving north on East Jennings Way. The man was taken to Northern Nevada Regional Hospital for his injuries, and no word on his condition was provided.
