Police are searching for the driver involved in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 84 in Southington that sent two people to the hospital just after 1:30 a.m. Thursday.
According to police, the car in question was navigating a construction scene on I-84 westbound near exit 30 when the driver abruptly changed lanes, striking the back end of a Honda Civic.
The driver of the Honda lost control and spun out, colliding with a tree about 40 feet off the roadway, police said.
Driver Shaughn Adamski, 25, of Naugatuck and passenger Robert Piech, 26, of Naugatuck, were taken to the hospital and the Honda was towed from the scene. Police said Adamski reported pain in his lower back and left shoulder and Piech suffered a minor head injury.
The offending driver fled before either victim could get a look at the car.
Anyone with information about the crash or the driver in question is urged to call State police Troop H at 860-534-1000.
