ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police are looking for a hit and run driver who caused a crash as he tried to get away from officers.
Police say they saw 32-year-old Alphonzo Winchester talking to two women they describe as known prostitutes Tuesday night.
An officer pulled him over on Eastman Drive.
When he asked Winchester to step out of the car, Winchester sped away.
