SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA -- A driver fled with two child passengers Tuesday morning after crashing into a power pole in northeast Sacramento, according to California Highway Patrol.
The incident occurred at the intersection of Auburn Boulevard and Myrtle Avenue near the Montclair Park neighborhood of North Highlands shortly before 11:03 a.m.
According to a witness, a man driving a black Mercedes attempted to turn onto Myrtle Avenue and struck a power pole, causing the car's airbags to deploy with an infant and a toddler in the vehicle.
Shortly after the crash, the driver of a gray vehicle was seen driving up to the scene and removing the toddler, baby, and a car seat from the Mercedes and taking them inside the gray vehicle. The gray vehicle then drove away and was last seen going eastbound on Myrtle Avenue.
The whereabouts of the Mercedes driver after the crash was not confirmed, but he appears to have left in the gray vehicle.
An ambulance was dispatched to the scene, though it was not confirmed whether or not injuries were sustained.
