ELM CREEK, Neb. (AP) - In a story Dec. 3 about a fatal hit-and-run crash in central Nebraska, The Associated Press misidentified a nearby village. The incident happened near Elm Creek, not Elk Creek.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Pedestrian dies in early morning hit-and-run crash

Authorities search for driver who hit pedestrian early Thursday and fled the fatal crash

ELM CREEK, Neb. (AP) - Authorities in Central Nebraska are investigating an early morning crash that killed a pedestrian near Elm Creek.

The Buffalo County Sheriff’s office says the incident was reported around 4:30 a.m. Thursday after an adult man was hit on Highway 183 near Interstate 80.

The victim was struck in the area between a Pilot truck stop and the Paradise City adult entertainment business.

Sheriff Capt. Bob Anderson says investigators haven’t determined exactly where the collision happened.

Authorities were still looking for the driver that hit the pedestrian Thursday afternoon.
