Original post at 4 p.m.: Rail Road Flat, CA — Emergency crews are on the scene of a solo-vehicle hit-and-run crash on Prussian Hill Road near Railroad Flat Road in the Rail Road Flat area of Calaveras County.
The San Andreas Unit of the CHP reports that a Range Rover went about two to three feet off the roadway into a ditch and the driver has fled the scene. The CHP relays that it does not have a description of the person being sought and they are checking the SUV’s registration for ownership. The collision happened around 3:30 p.m. Emergency vehicles are partially in the roadway so officers are directing traffic until tow crews can retrieve the vehicle from the ditch. An update will be given as soon as new information comes into the newsroom.
