Halifax Regional Police are searching for a driver involved in a hit and run crash that caused one car to flip on its roof in Dartmouth Sunday evening.

Police were called to the intersection of Portland Street and Carver Street just after 6 p.m. Sunday after one of two vehicles involved in a crash fled the scene.

One of the vehicles was travelling west on Portland Street and was passing through the intersection when a second vehicle, travelling south on Carver Street, failed to stop and struck the first vehicle, police say. 

The impact of the crash caused the vehicle travelling through the intersection from Portland Street to flip onto its roof. The second vehicle fled the scene. 

Paramedics took the driver of the flipped vehicle, a woman in her 50s, to hospital. She is expected to survive her injuries. 

Police are looking for the vehicle that fled the scene, a white or light coloured Pontiac Grand Am. It was last seen travelling west on Portland Street. Police say it would likely have sustained front-end damage from the collision.

Anyone with information on this crash is asked to contact police at 902-490-5016. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
