IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - Teton County Sheriff Tony Liford and a pedestrian received minor injuries in a hit-and-run accident and 12-minute pursuit that ended in the arrest of a Driggs woman.

Authorities say the incident unfolded shortly before 6 p.m. Friday when the sheriff’s office received a report of a female pedestrian who was struck by a car in Driggs. The car, which had a child passenger inside, then left the scene.

The Post Register reports (https://bit.ly/1pw4j4D ) that a chase ensued and at one point Liford was struck by the vehicle. The chase ended when the car stopped on a residential lawn near where the incident originally started.

The driver was taken into custody on charges that included driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in injury and child endangerment.
