Greenwood police and firefighters, as well as Greenwood County deputies and officers from the Lander University Police Department, responded to the scene along Grace Street near Laurel Avenue just after midnight Wednesday morning. That's where a white 2000 Ford Mustang sat in a ditch flipped over onto its top.
Witnesses said two white males got out of the vehicle moments after the crash, removed the license plate from car and fled the scene on foot heading east toward Cokesbury Street.
Officers tracked an address to one of the occupants by running its VIN. Police found a South Carolina driver's license and a cell phone belonging to a potential suspect after towers turned the vehicle upright. Officers responded to the address and talked to the suspect's girlfriend who was distraught, and she said she had not heard from the man.
