NORWALK - Norwalk police say they are searching for a driver who struck a teenager walking home from a party on New Year's Eve.

Authorities say Teanna Escourse, 16, was found in a snow bank outside of an apartment on Taylor Avenue early Saturday morning.

Her mother believes she may have been lying there unconscious for as long as an hour before two men walking by found her and called police.

Police say they were able to pull some evidence from the scene, including Escourse's clothing, and believe they're looking for a red vehicle with front-end damage.

Her family says she is still in a coma and on a breathing machine.
