COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Neighbors on Meritas Drive heard a loud bang outside their door around 3:00 Monday morning. 

When they looked outside, they saw a burgundy car flipped over, but no driver in site. The residents called 911.

When police arrived they discovered that the vehicle hit a Jeep Cherokee in the rear which was parked alongside the road. The impact was so severe, it caused the car to land upside down.

The driver crawled out of the vehicle and left the scene of the accident.  No one was inside the SUV.  Police are trying to identify the driver using license plates.

The owner of the Jeep Cherokee was inside his home at the time of the collision. Police knocked on his door to alert him of the accident.

If you have any information about the driver, call Columbus Police at 706-653-3400.
