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.

His black Lincoln Continental crashed into a black Chevrolet Tahoe, injuring the driver of that SUV.

Winchester was last seen running down an alley east of South street, but he left his cell phone and a dry cleaning bag with his name on it in his car.

He's charged with obstruction and several traffic charges.

If you know where police can find Alphonzo Winchester, call Crime Stoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
