Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._A woman is in police custody after taking off from the scene of an accident on foot.

Just before 2:00 p.m. Monday, police responded to an accident on the corner of southwest 13th Street and "H" Avenue in Lawton. The woman was driving a silver truck eastbound on "H" Avenue and didn't obey the yield sign before she slammed into a large SUV as it traveled on 13th Street going north. After the collision, the driver of the silver truck took off running from the scene. Police were later able to locate her three blocks away thanks to help from nearby witnesses.

She was sent to the hospital with possible injuries before heading to the Lawton City Jail for leaving the scene of the accident. Police have not released why the woman ran from the scene. The driver of the SUV was also sent to the hospital but her injuries are unknown at this time.
