APD looking for South Austin hit-and-run suspect

The Austin Police Department is looking for a man they say is connected to a June hit-and-run crash in South Austin.

APD says officers responded just before 12:30 p.m. June 1 to a crash near the intersection of E. William Cannon Drive and Janes Ranch Road.

A preliminary investigation shows a dark-colored Chevy Equinox crossed into oncoming traffic, hitting another vehicle. The unknown male driver immediately left the scene without attempting to render aid or call 9-1-1

One of the passengers in the struck vehicle was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
