Colorado Springs police are looking for a driver involved in a hit-and-run crash that seriously injured three others.

At 10 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a two-car wreck at the intersection of North Carefree Circle and North Academy Boulevard. The driver of one of the vehicles, a blue Toyota, had fled the scene, leaving three passengers behind. All three and the driver of the other vehicle, a Subaru, were taken to the hospital.
