A 26-year-old Omaha woman was critically injured early Sunday in a collision on Interstate 680 near West Center Road, and a Bennington man was arrested in connection with the hit-and-run crash.

Shardae S. Ferguson was taken to Creighton University Medical Center-Bergan Mercy with multiple leg fractures and abdominal injuries that were considered to be life-threatening, an Omaha police spokesman said. A hospital spokeswoman said Ferguson remained in critical condition Sunday evening.

Ferguson was a passenger in a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe that parked on the shoulder of I-680 after overheating. She got out of the Tahoe and was struck by a 2014 Dodge Ram pickup that drove away, police said.
