(KMOV)-- One person was hospitalized after a multiple car accident Monday morning in the Central West End.
According to police, a vehicle carrying two people was hit by another vehicle, causing the first vehicle to slam into a light pole.
The accident happened at the intersection of Kingshighway and Washington. Witnesses tell News 4 the car that slammed into the first vehicle apparently drove off after the accident. Police are still trying to confirm if there was another car that left the scene.
There was a third car that ended up a block away with damage to its front end; it is unclear what role this car had in the accident.
One person requested to be taken to a local hospital but did not appear to have serious injuries. Two others were checked out at the scene, both declined to be taken to a hospital.
Police are investigating conflicting accounts from witnesses on what happened and whether there was a third car involved, leaving the scene.
