Man flees scene of two-vehicle crash
One person hospitalized
One person was sent to hospital following a two-vehicle collision Saturday night and an RNC K-9 team was called in to search for a man who fled the area on foot.
The collision happened at the intersection of Captain Whelan Drive and Hamlyn Road in St. John’s just before 9 p.m. and left one car on the top of a snow bank. A man who was in that car was seen running away from the scene and it was unclear whether the man was the driver or a passenger.
Police were seen questioning a man who was in the vehicle as they investigated the crash.
The K-9 team made a short search of the area but were unable to locate the man who fled.
Both vehicles were extensively damaged, but the injuries were not thought to be serious.
