Two-vehicle accident - one vehicle leaves scene

A two-vehicle accident occurred shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday on Lancaster Avenue, near the Columbia Plaza.

Witnesses report that an SUV traveling west braked suddenly as it approached a traffic light at the plaza, and a Chevy Aveo then hit it from behind. The driver of the SUV, described as a Hispanic male, got out of his vehicle and talked briefly with the female driver of the Chevy before getting back into his vehicle and proceeding west on Lancaster Avenue and then turning right onto South Ninth Street.

The Chevy sustained front end damage, but the airbags did not deploy. The SUV is described as green in color with probable rear end damage.


  1. The suv that left was not at fought!

  2. If you are in an accident, your fault or not, you are to stay at the scene to talk to the police- if police are called. At minimum you must exchange insurance information with the other driver. You can (and in most cases will) be charged for leaving the scene of an accident whether it is your fault or not.
