Police on both sides of the river are looking for drivers who left the scene of their one-vehicle accidents Saturday morning.
The first one happened at North 29th Street and Avenue A in Council Bluffs shortly after 2 a.m. The driver apparently lost control and slammed into the light pole. The force of the collision was enough to activate the air bags in the car and break some bottles of beer inside the vehicle.
The second crash occurred minutes later at South 48th and J in Omaha. An SUV driver also struck a light pole and didn’t stick around for police to arrive.
