AUGUSTA, Ga.---Four people have been taken to the hospital after an accident on Highway 56 (Mike Padgett Highway). It happened in the 3900 block, not far from the scene of the fatal accident that happened on Saturday (March 24).

A brown Dodge pickup rear-ended a red Chevrolet Blazer that was preparing to turn left. The impact pushed the Blazer into oncoming traffic in the southbound lane, where it was hit head-on by a green Ford Windstar minivan.

The Dodge that caused the accident left the scene. Deputies are looking for that driver to charge him or her with hit and run.
