ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Authorities are looking for a man they say was involved in a hit and run in east Asheville.

It happened along Tunnel Road just a few hours ago when a sheriff's deputy saw a domestic dispute on the side of the road.

The man driving an SUV that was pulled over drove away when he saw flashing lights. That's when officials say that driver hit another vehicle and nearly went into Haw Creek.

That driver then ditched his SUV and took off, and authorities are still looking for him.

The driver in the other car was taken to Mission Hospital and is expected to be okay.

A portion of Tunnel Road was shut during the search for the driver.
