One taken to hospital after car crash on Salem Road

VICTORIA, Texas - Victoria Police are searching for a man who ran from a car crash Thursday afternoon on Salem Road. 
The call came in at 2:23 p.m. as a stolen vehicle. 

"The owner of the truck was able to locate his vehicle and a pursuit ensued," said VPD Media Spokesperson Lauren Meaux.

Police say the driver of a black truck crashed into a silver Ford as it was turning onto Salem Road from Easley Road.

One woman was taken away in an ambulance to Citizens Medical Center with non-life threating injuries.

Officers blocked off Salem Road from Guy Grant to John Stockbauer Dr.

"The roads were closed for about an hour," said Meaux. "It was a major crash, there was a lot of debris on the roadway, so they needed time to clean up the roadway and to get the vehicles off scene."

The road was back open by 4:45 p.m.

Witnesses say they saw a man run from the black truck.  VPD officers on scene confirmed they were looking for someone. VCSO along with the K9 unit joined in the search.
