Lexington police are looking for a driver who apparently hit a group of people with a car and then left during a dispute at a gas station early Thursday.
Lexington police Lt. Raymond Roller said three people claimed they were hit by the car in the parking lot of the Shell station at Versailles Road and Alexandria Drive.
Police initially were called to the scene about 3:15 a.m. for an accident. However, police say they think the driver hit the people intentionally and are investigating the case as an assault, Roller said.
Witnesses told police there was some type of disorder that led to the assault.
At least two of the victims, who were not named, left the scene by the time officers arrived. One was located in a truck on Alexandria, and another was found on Shaker Drive, about two miles away, when he called for an ambulance.
Roller said he didn't know where officers found the third victim, but they had talked to all three by later Thursday morning. Two of the victims were adults, and one was a juvenile.
None of the injuries was thought to be life-threatening, he said.
Roller said police have a description of the car but were not releasing it.
