LONDONDERRY — Police are looking for a driver who fled the scene of a crash in Londonderry yesterday.

Authorities were notified of a vehicle crash on I-93 north at around 7:20 p.m.

Callers reported that a vehicle had struck the left side guardrail, coming to rest in the two left lanes of the interstate.

Police say the driver of the vehicle had fled the scene, running into the woods off the east side of the highway.

Troopers arrived at the crash to find a 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan had lost control and struck the left guardrail causing disabling damage to the vehicle.

Inside the vehicle, alcohol was located, but the driver was not at the scene.

Troopers utilized a K-9 unit to attempt to locate the operator.

Debris in the road and the uncertainty of the whereabouts of the operator caused I-93 north to close at mile marker 16.4 in Londonderry for approximately 30 minutes.
