Erie police are searching for the driver of a car who took off after an overnight crash that sent one person to the hospital.

It happened around 1:30 Wednesday morning at West 26th and Sassafras streets.

Police say a driver ran a red light and crashed into another car. That second vehicle's driver had to go to the hospital to be checked out. Their injuries do not appear to be too serious. But that red light running driver took off.

At this point, police say all they know is that it was a blue sedan.

That investigation continues.
