Eagle Police are working to find the driver of a Ford F-150 pickup who they say ran into a woman walking along the side of Idaho 44 Sunday night. The driver left the scene.

Police say paramedics took the woman to a hospital for treatment of what appears to be non-life-threatening injuries.

The woman told police she had just left the Starbucks at Edgewood Lane around 8 p.m. on Sunday, and began walking east on the sidewalk along Idaho 44.

When the sidewalk ended, the woman kept walking on the dirt berm along the side of the road. She said she had just passed South Ancona Avenue when a dark-colored Ford F-150 -- also going eastbound -- swerved out of the lane of traffic and onto the berm, where the mirror on the passenger's side of the pickup hit the woman in the back of her head.

The woman said the blow did not knock her all the way to the ground, so she was able to see the pickup drive away. She described the truck as a mid-2000s F-150, possibly with an extended cab or cap on top of the cab.

Anyone with information should call Eagle Police at (208) 938-2260 or send an email to
