St Louis police are trying to track down the driver of a hit and run who collided with another car on South Grand.
Investigators say both vehicles were northbound on Grand at Juniata when one of the cars cut into the traffic lane, clipping the other car and sending that vehicle into a light pole and newly installed traffic signal. The car flipped over from the impact. The female driver was not seriously hurt but the car is heavily damaged.
The driver responsible continued driving northbound on Grand and remains at large.
Police say on 66 percent of Missouri teens wear their seat belt when driving or riding in a vehicle. Under the graduated driver's license law, all passengers in a car being driven by someone 16 to 18 years must wear their seat belt. Otherwise, police can pull the driver over and issue a ticket.
Safety officials say eight out of 10 teens killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled. And wearing a seat belt is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.
