Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Police are still trying to identify the driver of a pickup truck, that nearly hit a parked patrol car, before causing a head on collision.

It happened shortly before 2 this morning in the 12-hundred block of 12th Avenue North.

Officers were investigating another accident involving a car that hit a utility pole, when the driver of a red, full-sized pick up truck slammed on his brakes.

That driver of the truck went around police, and turned right onto University Drive.

He was headed the wrong way down the road, hit another vehicle head on, got out of his vehicle, and took off running.

Lt. Joel Vettel with the Fargo Police says, "the crash resulted in two injuries, which also very concerning for us when anytime when someone is injured in a crash, and then again the behavior of driver certainly rises to the point where we have a feeling that alcohol may be involved in this case. "
