Police look for hit and run driver in Highland Park that injured 2

Police are looking for a hit and run driver in Highland Park.

Two people are recovering after the crash on the Davison freeway service drive. The suspect tried to drive off but his vehicle suffered plenty of damage leaving a trail of fluid.

The driver and passenger made it about 500 feet, then fled on foot.

"After that we saw them running," said one witness.“I don't know who he was, I saw them running."

Police are looking for the driver of a gold Buick after the crash, which happened on the westbound service drive of the Davison Freeway and Second Street Tuesday evening.

The crash sent a van on its side and injured at least two people.

FOX 2: "Do you know how your mom is doing right now?"

"No," said a woman whose mother was in the van. "I just know she was rushed to the hospital. I am really just want to cry. I want whoever that did this to come forward."

Police say the driver in the gold Buick ran a stop sign and T-boned the van. A disabled woman was inside.

"She was in the wheelchair and ejected her from the wheelchair," said Highland Park Police Chief Kevin Coney. "They conveyed her to the hospital. She is in stable condition at this time."

Coney said it is only "a matter of time" before police find and arrest the driver who fled the scene.

"He could have stopped and gave his side of the story, it would have been better circumstances," Coney said. "Now we have to find out the facts the hard way."

That driver will likely face criminal charges but personal items like a cell phone was recovered inside the car.
