A woman driving a silver Pontiac Torrent was injured after her car was struck at the intersection of Church and Pine streets and flipped over.

Witnesses to the crash, which occurred at about 6:30 p.m., said that a second vehicle involved in the collision had left the scene. Pieces of a red bumper and a license plate were left behind at the scene.

Lodi police used the license plate to track down the car. A suspect, whose identity was not released Thursday night, was arrested, police said.

Gayle Weitt was working at Renaissance Salon when she heard the car start skidding down the street. The noise was so loud, the women in the salon were afraid the car was going to crash into the building.

“It kept coming closer and closer. It was a horrible scraping noise. We were almost scared to come out here,” she said.

When she walked outside, Weitt saw the over-turned car, but the other car involved in the accident was gone. Weitt and other bystanders said the license plate of the other car fell off during the accident and was left at the scene.

“We hear all the crashes around here,” Weitt said. “That one was different — like a never-ending crash.”

The driver of the silver Pontiac complained of pain and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Her status was unknown on Thursday evening, but police said she did not appear to suffer major injuries.

Lodi police are continuing to investigate the collision, but they do not believe alcohol was involved.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
