South Bend police search for green Durango after hit and run crash

 SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A woman is recovering after she drove through a stop sign, collided with a SUV, and was thrown from her car.

ABC 57 has learned the woman, Amy Holland, was treated for head injuries at a local hospital. She has since been released.

Police said this all happened around 2 p.m. on the corner of Kentucky and Sample Street in South Bend.

Witnesses told us that Holland was driving recklessly down Kentucky St., went right through the stop sign into traffic on Sample Street, and collided with a Dodge Durango. She was thrown from the car, right out of the passenger window.

That's when the driver of the Dodge Durango took off.

Witnesses said Holland was conscious but ambulances transported her to Memorial Hospital.

Police had Sample Street blocked off from Dundee Street to Lake Street for three hours while they took pictures of the crash.

Police are still looking for the green Dodge Durango that witnesses said sped off after the crash.

"She took off flying! Damn near sideswiped every car and flew right into traffic! I guess it was a durango, and the guy had just taken off," said witness Steve Briones.

There is no word on whether Holland was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

However, ABC 57’s Jessie McDonough does have a call into the officer. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
