Northumberland OPP are investigating tonight after a driver fled the scene of a collision on the 401 in Port Hope.
It was just after 10:00PM Wednesday evening that OPP were called to a single vehicle MVC in the eastbound lanes of the 401 near Theatre Rd.
The vehicle left the roadway after the driver lost control entering the southbound ditch.
A witness to the accident told Northumberland County Breaking News Feed that the vehicle was travelling at a high rate of speed when the collision happened.
A local tow operator was on the side of the road with the driver but as police arrived the driver fled the scene on foot into thick brush.
Charges are unknown at this time.
