The Lancaster County Sheriff says a Grand Island woman is responsible for the hit and run of a road worker on I-80 last Friday.
Sheriff Terry Wagner says 59–year–old Alice Gloyne was driving to Omaha for a work training session when she hit a construction worker and a sign on the side of the interstate near Waverly.
Wagner says Gloyne admitted to investigators that she hit a sign, but denied hitting a man. The sheriff says the impact carried the man nearly 170 feet on the hood of her car.
"The vehicle did stop. The driver did not get out but the vehicle did stop and that's when he was able to get the last three digits of the license plate number," Sheriff Wagner said.
Gloyne was arrested for leaving the scene of an injury accident. The road worker was taken to the hospital. He was treated and released the same day.
