Shortly before 6:00pm on Thursday, units from the Centre Police and Fire Departments, Cherokee EMS, and personnel from the Cherokee County Rescue Squad all responded to what was initially called-in as a two vehicle accident, occurring on the Cedar Bluff Road in front of Deans Pharmacy.

However, when officers arrived on the scene it was discovered that the accident had actually involved a third vehicle, which had left the scene.

A lookout was put out for the vehicle, which was last seen traveling toward Cedar Bluff, and was later spotted heading into Chattooga County near Mill Creek. Its unknown at this time if the vehicle, described as a large body, White Ford pickup, was ever found.

The driver of one of the other vehicles was treated at the scene by paramedics, for what appeared to be only minor cuts and scrapes. No other persons were injured in the mishap.

The accident is under investigation by the Centre Police Department.
