BURLINGTON, N.C. — Burlington police said they’re looking for a man accused running a red light, causing a crash that injured a woman and then leaving the scene.

Authorities said 32-year-old Wilson Earl White ran the light at the intersection of North Park Avenue and Elmira Street shortly before 10 p.m. Friday.

White was driving a Ford F-150 pick-up north on North Park Avenue that hit a 2003 Isuzu Rodeo headed east on Elmira Street, police said.

White got out of the truck and ran off with a passenger, while the victim had to be extricated from her vehicle, authorities said.

Police said an emergency crew took the 57-year-old victim to Alamance Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. She was later taken to UNC Chapel Hill for treatment.

Police said warrants were obtained on White for felony hit and run and running a red light.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts can call the Burlington Police Department at (336) 229-3500 or Burlington/Alamance Crimestoppers at (336) 229-7100.
