WACO -

Waco police are searching for the driver in a hit and run that sent one man to the hospital with life threatening injuries. The hit and run happened just before 11 p.m. Thursday night at 2nd and Webster in Waco.

According to police, an argument started between the driver of a black Challenger and the driver of a red Pontiac Grand Am. During the argument, the driver of the Grand Am intentionally rammed the Challenger.

Alex Chapa III was in a separate vehicle and got out his car when he saw the crash. Police say Chapa was hit by the Grand Am and knocked into the hood and then into the road.

Chapa was transported to Hillcrest Hospital with life threatening injuries.

The suspected driver is described as a white man, 5'10 with brown hair and a goatee in his early 20's. There was also a black female passenger believed to be in her early 20's.

The description of the vehicle is a red 2000's model Pontiac Grand Am, with right quarter panel damage and possible black paint transfer. The car also had a broken tail light lens on the passenger side.

If you have any information, call police at (254) 750-7500.
