Police seek driver in hit-and-run

 

A black Acura hit a large tree, knocked down a fence, tore through a lawn and smashed into three parked cars in a driveway on San Mateo Drive near Middle Avenue in the early-morning hours Sunday, Jan. 3, according to Menlo Park police.

The collision was reported around 3 a.m.; the driver fled before police arrived. Police found a cell phone and a wallet with an identification card in the car, and are trying to determine whether they belong to the driver.

The car came to rest after hitting a black Acura sports-utility vehicle, a black Volkswagen passenger car, and a white Toyota van -- all parked in the same driveway, according to police spokeswoman Nicole Acker.

Police don't know whether the driver was drunk at the time. No injuries were reported.

Was there any money in the wallet? If so, the car, cellphone and wallet were not mine...but the money is.
