Walker County Sheriff’s investigators along with the Georgia State Patrol are looking for a hit and run driver who left his vehicle on foot Monday morning after an accident just north of the Chattooga County line on Highway 27.

Troopers say that a Hispanic male fled the scene on foot after an accident involving another vehicle that sent the other driver to Erlanger Medical Center by Lifeforce with serious injuries.  Law enforcement say that the man attempted to pry the tag from the vehicle before he fled the scene.

Anyone with information about the accident that happened on Monday morning shortly after 7 AM are asked to contact the Walker County Sheriff’s Department or the Georgia State Patrol
