One person suffered minor injuries following a two-car crash and the driver of the vehicle left the scene, said Lt. Gary Larsen.
“The person cut through Crawford Park and went along side the pavilion, the bailed out of the vehicle and ran toward Sunshine Drive,” Larsen said. “They didn’t catch him.”
The owner of the car that fled told police that their grand daughter had the vehicle, but the driver at the scene of the crash was a male.
