COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Two people were injured after a violent wreck Wednesday evening on Cusseta Road in Columbus.
Columbus police say the car swerved to avoid hitting another care turning left and lost control, striking a metro bus sign, small tree, utility wire, and a utility pole.
The car split in half from the collisions. Both the driver and passenger were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Police also say the two occupants originally fled the vehicle after the wreck, and the driver was arrested on multiple counts after returning to the scene, including driving with a suspended license.
No word yet on if any charges will be filed.
