Evansville Police say officers were called to a hit and run at the intersection of Kentucky Avenue and Powell Avenue Saturday.

Authorities say when they arrived, they located several vehicle parts lying in the roadway.

They were then flagged down by the driver of a white Chrysler 300.

EPD says the driver told them the vehicle was not hers, but her cousins. The woman told authorities she was traveling South on Kentucky Avenue. She told officers a red Hyundai was facing East at the intersection of Powell Avenue and Kentucky Avenue when the vehicle turned North on Kentucky Avenue.

Authorities say the woman told them the vehicle moved into the Southbound lane of Kentucky, forcing the Chrysler 300 to swerve into the left hand lane.

EPD says the right side of the Hyundai hit the right side of the Chrysler 300.

Police say the Hyundai continued to drive North on Kentucky Avenue and out of site.

The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
