Four Car Collision After Driver Fled the Scene
COLUMBIA - The Columbia Fire Department arrived at the intersection of McBaine and West Worley to rescue a man who was trapped inside his Chrysler Sebring after a four car collision on November 9. Rescue workers extracted him using hydraulic equipment. Investigators say the Sebring rear-ended a red Ford pickup truck at the intersection of Sexton and Garth. The Sebring then fled the scene of the accident.
The pickup traveled closely behind in an effort to get a license plate number. This was when a Dodge Dakota hit the Sebring in a T-bone collision. The driver of the Dakota was taken to University Hospital and suffered only minor injures. However, the speed of the T-bone collision caused the Sebring to collide with a utility vehicle that was traveling north on McBaine. The driver and the passenger of the utility vehicle were uninjured but the driver of the Sebring remains at University Hospital with critical injuries.
