UPDATE: Chattanooga Police are still looking for the driver involved in a hit-and-run that sent another driver to the hospital.

Channel 3 learned three people witnessed the crash. Lynn Scheuring and her daughter were two of them. 

Scheuring was visiting her son for Thanksgiving, who lives a block away from the crash scene. Scheuring and her daughter were walking when the crash happened.

"We thought somebody would be dead, " she said. "We were lucky we weren't two minutes earlier for our walk." 

Scheuring says the driver of a black Dodge truck ran a stop sign and hit a car, pushing it into that electric pole.

"He was speeding; he was definitely speeding," Scheuring said. "We ran away because we heard the explosion and we saw the wires move, so we were concerned that the wires would fall and they were live. We're not sure if it was an airbag explosion. I don't think any of the tires were out, but it was that kind of noise." 

Scheuring says moments later, her daughter saw the truck's driver running away.

"We saw the car door open. I was calling 911, and she says oh he's safe. He's getting out of the car and then she goes, oh no he's running away. It was just frightening, you know when we were starting to walk away our legs were shaking. It was upsetting," Scheuring added.
