Knox County officials seek help to identify hit-and-run driver
Police in Knox County are trying to track down the driver in a hit-and-run that seriously injured a 16-year-old girl.
Around 9 Monday morning a passerby found the girl unresponsive on the side of the West Washington Road in Washington.
Her family says Emily Miller was out for a walk and stopped to take a picture of a caterpillar when she was hit.
Police believe the driver left the scene.
The family says Emily is in stable condition, but that she broke her pelvis -- and will likely be wheelchair-bound.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Knox County Sheriff's Office at 594-0429.
