Omaha Police are looking for the driver of a vehicle that hit a Creighton University student around 9 p.m. on September 20th. 

Photos and video released by the Omaha Police Department are attached to this story. 

Kayley Palmer was walking home from a physics night class when a vehicle hit her at 20th and Cuming Street. Police say the driver was traveling east on Cuming Street. They say Palmer was in the crosswalk but the "do not walk" sign was on. The vehicle had a green light. 

Palmer was knocked unconscious. The driver kept going. Police say it was a newer model, dark-colored vehicle (possibly a black Hyundai Sonata).

Palmer told 3 News Now that Good Samaritans stopped to help her. She suffered a brain bleed and a concussion. She is now out of the hospital. Although she's bruised and scraped, she is doing better. 

Palmer told us, "I really wish the person would have had a little bit of courage and stopped." You can watch more from her interview and her plea to the driver, here
