OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A female was seriously injured after being hit by a pickup truck overnight Sunday.

Officers responded to I-680 NB just south of West Center at 12:15 a.m. for a personal injury hit and run crash.

Investigation showed a 1999 Chevy Tahoe overheated and parked on the shoulder of I-680 NB.

The Chevy passenger, Shardae S. Ferguson, 26, exited the vehicle and was struck by a 2014 Dodge Ram pickup.

The Dodge continued driving and was followed by various citizens to 126th and Pierce where David D. Kenney, 32, was detained.

Ferguson was transported to CHI Bergan by OFD Medics with serious injuries, according to police.

Kenney showed signs of alcohol impairment and was transported to OPD Headquarters where he submitted a breathalyzer test, testing under the legal limit.

During an interview with a traffic investigator, Kenney said he was aware of hitting something but continued to drive and leave the scene.

Kenney was booked into Douglas County Corrections for leaving the scene of an injury crash which resulted in serious injury or death.

Ferguson is being treated for multiple leg fractures and abdominal injuries, which are considered life threatening.

The adult male driver of the Chevy and two juvenile passengers were uninjured.
