A stretch of state Highway 12 in Santa Rosa that has been closed since Saturday morning due to an injury hit-and-run crash has reopened, according to police.
Authorities were attempting to locate a driver who fled the scene of the crash near the intersection of Brush Creek Road and state Highway 12, which sent another driver to the hospital and closed the roadway, police said.
Police said the two-car collision was reported around 6 a.m. When officers arrived on the scene, they found two cars with major damage.
The driver and only occupant of one car suffered moderate injuries and was taken to a hospital, while the driver of the other car fled on foot.
The crash also downed power poles and lines, which blocked the roadway and caused a brief power outage in the surrounding area, according to police.
Due to the injuries suffered by the driver who was hospitalized, the incident was being investigated as a felony hit-and-run case, police said.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or has additional information was asked to call Santa Rosa police Officer Dan Hackett at (707) 543-3636.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
