In another hit and run, a Honda Accord received significant damage when it collided with a big rig, Friday afternoon. CHP Officer Justin Barnthouse says the accident happened on Highway 49 near Smith Road Friday evening. Officer Barnhouse says a white Honda Accord was attempting to pass a Volvo big rig from Auburn. Officer Barnthouse says the Honda was attempting to pass in the left turn only lane, when the driver realized there was not enough room left for the passing maneuver.
After the collision the driver of the Honda fled the scene.
