The driver and passengers of a stolen car fled the scene after hitting a Porsche on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge this morning.
Redwood City California Highway Patrol officers responded to a call reporting a two-vehicle hit-and-run collision at 5:12 a.m., according to CHP Officer Art Montiel.
A dark 1988 Toyota struck the 1986 Porsche on westbound State Route 92, then continued driving until it reached Pier 1 just after the road declines, Montiel said.
The driver and three passengers abandoned the car off of the freeway in Foster City and fled on foot, Montiel said.
A witness said the driver may have been carrying a handgun, and CHP officers set up a perimeter and began searching for the suspects with Foster City police officers, Montiel said.
Officers were unable to locate the suspects and stopped the search after about an hour, Montiel said.
An investigation revealed that the Toyota had been stolen from a home in Redwood City sometime during the night on Thursday, Montiel said.
The driver of the Porsche complained of pain from the collision and was transported to Eden Hospital in Castro Valley for treatment, Montiel said.
The collision and search did not affect traffic, Montiel said.
The CHP is asking any witnesses to contact Officer Tutthill at (650) 369-6261.
