The search is on for a driver who hit a female police officer in Bat Yam and fled the scene without offering assistance.

Police said they are investigating the hit and run as a criminal incident, and don’t believe it was a terror attack.

The incident happened on Hakomemiyut Street on the entry ramp to the southbound lane of the Ayalon Freeway. Police said the officer and other police at the scene were on patrol on the on-ramp, checking drivers before they went on to the Ayalon when she was hit. Police opened fire on the vehicle but it managed to get away. Police said the suspect was asked to stop but did not.

The police officer was taken by paramedics to nearby Wolfson Hospital in moderate condition, Magen David Adom said. Initially after the first report the National Traffic Police said that a suspect in the hit and run was arrested, but within minutes they said that the suspect remains at large.
