Police Search for Driver Who Fled Hit-And-Run in Waterbury

Police are investigating a hit-and-run crash in Waterbury on Wednesday morning and they are looking for the driver who ran from the scene.

Police said a black Acura going west on Plank Road crossed the center line into the lane of a white Honda Accord, which tried to avoid the crash, and the vehicles collided head-on. The fire department extricated the driver and front passenger of the white Honda Accord.
