Police are looking for a man who ran another driver off the road and into a tree late Tuesday morning.

The victim was driving along Kenton Rd. near College Rd. when a man driving an older model SUV began tailgating her, according to police. As the driver of the SUV made an attempt to pass the victim over a double yellow line, he sideswiped the driver’s side of the victim’s car.

That sent the car off the road and into a tree. The SUV never stopped.

The woman was taken to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
