PUEBLO — The Pueblo Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a driver involved in an injury accident.

According to the department, Wednesday morning just after 10 a.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Norwood Ave. and E. 21st Street for an unknown and unconscious woman who was injured after falling out of a moving vehicle.
