Lincoln police believe they have arrested the woman responsible for a hit and run in February.

Officers arrested 53-year-old Debra Novak on March 14. According to court documents, police say Novak hit David Hughes as he was crossing the street at 48th and Madison, then and took off.

Police used witness accounts and debris left at the scene to narrow their search for the driver. Police also learned Novak told people she hit someone and rented a storage unit the next morning.

Police found the damaged car in the unit and found a beer can lodged in the grill the victim was carrying when he was hit.

Novak was arrested for leaving the scene of a serious accident.
