Officers first got a call at about 4:10 p.m. Thursday for an injury traffic accident near the intersection of Wardlow Road and Cherry Avenue, just west of the Long Beach Airport in Cal Heights. Two vehicles were still at the scene and one was flipped over, police spokeswoman Shaunna Dandoy said.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that a blue van had hit the two vehicles and fled northbound on Cherry Avenue,” Dandoy said.
