Police: Hit & run, chase end with car hitting building
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say the single-car crash that ended when the vehicle hit a pole and a building on Wooster Street this morning started with a hit and run in a restaurant parking lot.
Police say the call about the crash came in around 6:30 a.m., but crews continued clearing the road in the 1700 block of Wooster Street for at least an hour.
WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley says a female driver hit a car in the Chick-Fil-A parking lot on oleander Drive. Rawley says the driver chased after the woman, who eventually crashed. EMS took the woman to the hospital. Police say she had a minor concussion. The other driver was cited for careless and reckless driving.
Dispatchers say the crash blocked both lanes of Wooster before crews opened one of them for traffic.
