The Columbus, OH, ABC affiliate said police were looking for Teresa Peters, a woman Levine was interviewing as part of a hidden camera investigation.

>UPDATE 10:49 a.m.: WSYX reports the woman suspected of hitting Levine with her car is now in custody.

According to the station, “Steve confronted the woman as she got into her car.  The woman started backing up even though the driver’s door was still open.  Steve’s leg was pinned under the car.  The driver took off.”

The station said the blue Honda Peters allegedly used in the hit-and-run was found close to where the hit-and-run happened.

Peters, who is still at large, faces charges of felonious assault. Levine’s leg was broken in three places. He is expected to be OK.
