Police are looking for the driver of a dark purple car involved in a hit-and-run wreck Monday afternoon in south Salina.

The car was northeastbound in the 2300 block of Belmont Boulevard and was switching lanes to make a left turn when it struck a black 2016 Chevrolet Equinox that also was northeast bound, Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester said this morning. After striking the Equinox, the purple car fled the scene.

The wreck occurred at approximately 3 p.m. Monday.

The driver of the Equinox, a 63-year-old Salina woman, was not reported injured.

Forrester said the Equinox had damage to the rear driver's side. The purple car is believed to have damage on the front passenger side, he added.
