At least one motorist was injured in a hit-and-run crash on U.S. 101 in Redwood City this morning (Feb. 22), a California Highway Patrol officer said.
Just after 5:30 a.m., CHP responded to a crash on southbound 101, just north of Whipple Avenue, California Highway Patrol Officer Kevin Bartlett said.
CHP officers arrived at the scene and found a red car that had spun sideways, blocking the slow lane of the highway, Bartlett said.
Barlett said that a full-sized Ford had crashed into the red car, sustaining major damage.
Although both cars remained on the scene, the accident is being considered a hit-and-run because one of the motorists involved fled on foot following the crash, Barlett said.
At least one person was transported to a local hospital, but the extent of their injuries remains unknown, according to Bartlett.
All lanes of the highway were cleared just after 6 a.m., Bartlett said.
