MT. HOPE - A two-vehicle hit and run accident on Route 19 sends one person to the hospital.

Officials on scene say an older model white Chevy Silverado attempted to make a U-turn and clipped another truck, causing that truck to lose control and crash.  The driver of the second truck was injured and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital. 

Police are looking for the male driver of the white Silverado who fled northbound on 19. 

The suspect vehicle is missing its bumper which police will use to identify the model year of the vehicle.

Police continue to investigate, if you have any information you are urged to contact the Fayette County Sheriff's Department.
