LAS VEGAS -- A North Las Vegas Police officer was hurt in an accident on I-15 near D Street, according to Nevada Highway Patrol. Southbound I-15 was closed all the way down to Lake Mead.  

NHP said witnesses told them at around 8:30 p.m. the officer was riding in the right lane closest to the right shoulder, when a green sedan came from the left lane and struck the officer.  

Troopers said they're still searching for the car because the driver didn't stop.

North Las Vegas Police's Twitter page said the officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries. 


He was taken to University Medical Center.  The officer is 45 years old and he has been with the department for 18 years.

This is a developing story.
