EPHRATA, Pa. (WHTM) – Police are looking for drivers responsible for two hit-and-run crashes on Thursday, including one that injured another driver.

A 35-year-old borough man was turning into the Wawa parking lot in the 600 block of South Reading Road when a dark sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Impala, pulled from the lot and struck his driver’s side door around 12:20 p.m., police said.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment of head injuries.

The sedan initially stopped, but the woman driving it then fled north on South Reading Road. Police said her car may have front and driver’s side damage.
