EPPING, N.H. (CBS) – Police arrested a driver they say seriously injured a Dunkin’ Donuts employee near a New Hampshire store before leaving the scene.

A customer found the victim on the ground in the parking lot of the Xtra Mart and Dunkin’ Donuts on Calef Highway in Epping just before 4 a.m. on Wednesday.

Police say the woman was walking near Dunkin’ Donuts when she was hit by a pick-up truck, suffering “extensive injuries.”

The driver allegedly got out of her truck then got back behind the wheel and drove away.

“Our thoughts are with the franchisee’s employee who was injured in the incident. We understand that the franchisee is cooperating with the police investigating this matter,” Dunkin’ Donuts said in a statement.
