Alexandria Police are investigating a hit and run involving an AVIS rental car at the intersection of S. Henry and Franklin Streets in Old Town.

The May 4 incident occurred at around 6:20 a.m., and left two motorists injured. The rental car, a Toyota Camry, was recorded running through a red, and then hit a 1999 Honda Civic traveling east on Franklin. The Civic was consequently then pushed into the path of another car.

One of the drivers was transported to the hospital with a serious hip injury and possible internal bleeding, and the other driver was treated for undisclosed minor injuries.

“When the vehicles came to final rest, the (suspect) fled the scene prior to police or EMS arrival and did not return to the scene,” police said in a search warrant affidavit.

The car was rented out to a man by the name of Daniel Lee Nelson, however the name “did not return any result in law enforcement, nor DMV databases,” police said.

The Camry has since been impounded.
