A car was making a left turn onto Peachtree Road about 11:40 p.m. when it was struck from behind by another car, said Officer First Class Tracey Duffy.
The second car, which was described by police as a white older model Buick LaSabre with Delaware registration, fled from the scene, Duffy said. The vehicle likely has heavy front damage.
Both the 43-year-old driver of the car that was struck and his 45-year-old passenger were taken to a hospital.
