LaFayette Police are looking for a “hit and run” driver, who escaped following a crash Friday afternoon on the Bypass at East Villanow Street.
Witnesses said a Toyota 4-Runner ran a red light on Villanow and struck a Southbound Nissan Titan on the 27 Bypass.
The resulting crash disabled the Titan… but the 4-Runner continued South for a short distance before the driver bailed and ran near LaFayette’s Public Safety building. Georgia Corrections brought in a K-9 for the search, but the subject was not located.
He is identified as 37 year old Jace Anthony Edwards of LaFayette. His passenger reported minor injuries but refused medical treatment.
The driver of the Nissan was treated at the scene by Fire and Medical responders.
The accident was reported at 12:40 p.m. Friday.
