A man was transported to a Boise hospital with serious injuries after a scooter crash in Nampa Saturday night, and police are looking for the driver of a car that witnesses said was involved in the crash.
At 7:45 p.m., police were called to the crash scene at 12th Ave Road and East Sherman Avenue. Police say their preliminary investigation found that the scooter was traveling south on 12th Ave Road, and a white or silver passenger car traveling north on the same street turned in front of the scooter.
"It was a serious impact," said Nampa Police Sgt. Tim Randall. "It looks like we have the front emblem off the vehicle. It was a Buick." Randall said the man on the scooter wasn't wearing a helmet, and he remained hospitalized Monday in serious condition.
The white passenger car fled west on East Sherman Avenue, then north on South Olive Street, witnesses told police.
Police have examined video of the crash from a nearby business and say the car appears to be a Buick Regal four-door sedan. The video showed there were two other cars behind the Buick at the time of the crash and police would like to talk to those drivers about what they saw, Randall said Monday.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Nampa Police Sgt. Matt Pavelek, 468- 5608. Information can also be called in to CrimeStoppers at 343-COPS (2677).
