Several injured in hit-and-run crash on Six Mile Lane

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police are looking for a driver involved in a hit-and-run crash that injured two adults and three children early Saturday. It happened around 2 a.m. in the 6500 block of Six Mile Lane.

According to a statement from LMPD spokeswoman Officer Carey Klain, police responded to reports of an injury accident involving two Lincoln Town Cars at Six Mile Lane and Lodge Lane at 2:09 a.m.

Police say a silver 2011 Lincoln Town Car was traveling south on Six Mile Lane when it apparently left the main roadway. The driver overcorrected and veered into northbound traffic, colliding head-on with an older model gray Lincoln Town Car.

Two adults and three children - ages 1, 2 and 9 - were in the Lincoln. One adult was taken to University Hospital and all three children were taken to Kosair Children's Hospital. The 9-year-old was sent to surgery with life-threatening injuries. 

No word yet on their conditions.

Police say the driver of the 2011 Lincoln left the scene after talking briefly with witnesses.

LMPD officials say they have some good leads they are following but would like to encourage the driver to turn himself in. 

The at-fault vehicle is a rental car, a 2011 silver Lincoln with Tennessee plates. The driver is described as a black male in his early 20s, approximately 5'8 and weighing between 150-160 pounds. When last seen he was wearing blue shorts and a white T-shirt.
