Police are seeking a hit-and-run driver who ran down a nurse outside a hospital entrance in Syracuse, N.Y.

Authorities say 61-year-old Rebecca Forsythe suffered two fractured vertebrae, a broken leg and a cut to her head when she was hit Dec. 2 outside Crouse Hospital. She's in good condition.

Forsythe was nearly across the street when a sedan hit her.

Authorities say an anonymous tip led them to the car Thursday, a day after they released a security surveillance video of the strike in hopes of finding a suspect.
