THURSTON COUNTY, Wash. -- A 31-year-old man from Thurston County was arrested over the weekend in connection with a hit-and-run that left a high school student with a head injury and a broken leg.

The suspect was arrested for felony hit-and-run, a felony warrant and other charges, according to the Thurston County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's office is still looking for the vehicle the man was driving when he allegedly hit the student.

According to the sheriff's office, it happened Sept. 30 at Pacific Avenue SE and Steilacoom Road SE.

Video released by the sheriff's office shows the moment when the student was hit. The driver kept on going and didn't stop to see if she was OK.

Deputies said the student suffered a broken leg and a head injury. She's since been released from the hospital, but will require follow-up medical appointments.

The vehicle is a four-door sedan - possibly an early 2000s Toyota Camry or Corolla - with brown metallic paint, previous damage on the rear passenger side and different hubcaps on the back passenger wheel. The vehicle might also have damage on the front passenger side of the car.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's office.
