A driver who fled the scene of a single-car crash on Willowside Road west of Santa Rosa Wednesday night prompted a search on foot and by air until he was located, authorities said.

The unidentified driver was heading south on Willowside at about 6:30 p.m. when the Chevy sedan flipped north of Hall Road, CHP Sgt. John Evans said.

Evans said the driver may have over-corrected after crossing the yellow line.

Authorities found two passengers with minor injuries.

The driver eventually was found on Fulton Road, east of the crash. He was being treated for a head injury, Evans said.
