Nevada Highway Patrol has found the driver who hit one of their patrol cars on Monday.

It happened around 5:03 p.m. local time Monday. A trooper was conducting a traffic stop on U.S. 95 northbound near Summerlin Parkway. Both vehicles were stopped on the right shoulder when another vehicle disregarded the Move Over Law and hit the trooper's vehicle.

The collision resulted in the door being almost torn off. The driver of the other vehicle kept going.

After the hit-and-run driver was found Tuesday, the person was ticketed but not arrested. She was issued citations for driving without a valid license, hit-and-run property damage and failure to stop and render aid, all misdemeanors.

Fortunately, the trooper was not injured.

NHP released body-camera video of the incident.
