A hit-and-run involving a pedestrian Wednesday night in Vancouver left the victim with a broken arm, according to police.

Officers were dispatched about 8:36 p.m. to Northeast 112th Avenue and Northeast 49th Street.

A woman was in the crosswalk with the signal when a newer-model, black Ford F-150 Lariat ran a red light and struck her, Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Kim Kapp said in an email.

The woman suffered a broken arm, Kapp said.

The police department’s traffic unit is investigating.
