New Castle County Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who injured a teen walking home from the school bus in Bear.

The 16-year-old girl was crossing the street at the intersection of Wellington Drive and Pulaski Highway on Thursday evening when she was hit.

The girl told police she saw a silver vehicle stop at the intersection, but when she began to cross in the crosswalk, she was hit by the vehicle, which then fled.

Police say the girl's ankle was injured, but she refused medical treatment.

Authorities ask anyone with information about the crash to contact investigators.
