A driver flips his car, crashes it near the Florida State campus, and runs.

A witness took the attached photos of the scene last night.

Tallahassee Police say it happened just before midnight, when a man crashed his car near Stadium Drive and Hendry Street.

Officers say the man got out of his car and ran. K-9 units weren't able to find him.

Witnesses say the man was bleeding badly and went to the hospital, where cops found him.

One of the witnesses tells us the crashed car hit another woman's vehicle as it flipped.

"I only caught the debris that was flying up in the air when the car went airborne. I got out the car and made sure she was okay. There was glass and everything and blood and all of that. But, the other he fled and ran over here by the stadium," said Terry Copeland, an eyewitness.

Police say the driver that fled was given citations.

No names have been released.
