A woman has been arrested for a hit and run crash that left a visually impaired, 58-year-old woman injured last month, police say.

On Tuesday, Kathryn Launer, 68, was arrested and booked on leaving the scene of an accident with serious bodily injury.

The crash happened on Sept. 13 at around 8:45 a.m.

Lincoln police officers were called to the crash site, and witnesses gave them the license plate of the car involved.

Shortly thereafter, police found and interviewed the driver.

A thorough investigation eventually led to Launer's citation and arrest.
