WICHITA, Kan. (WIBW) - Authorities said a driver that caused a single-vehicle crash Saturday in Sedgwick County fled the scene, leaving behind their passenger who was seriously injured.

The Kansas Highway Patrol responded to the crash just after 3 p.m. on October 29 on the ramp from Northbound I-135 to Eastbound Kellogg.

They said a Chevrolet Tahoe was headed north when it left the road for an unknown reason, crashed through a guardrail, and stopped on Grove St. under the exit ramp.

KHP said the driver of the SUV left on foot and has yet to be identified. Their passenger, Monice White, 28, of Wichita had to be taken to the hospital for injuries believed to be serious.

KHP said White was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
