Albany Police are looking for a driver who left the scene of a crash and damaged seven vehicles at Nottingham Apartments around 3:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

Wanda Tinson and Ethel Washington are still in disbelief over the damage done to their cars. They are just two of several people who found their cars totaled or dented early Sunday morning.

"We're pretty much in shock," said Wanda Tinson.

"We were standing out here like, oh my gosh it was like a scene from a movie," said Ethel Washington.

Police say a burgundy Chevrolet Tahoe jumped the curb and hit a Honda Civic and six other cars.

"He just came hit about three, six, three cars and three more and then mine was the last one that he hit and he just took off," said Washington.

Two of Wanda Tinson's cars were damaged.

"My neighbor's vehicle was completely messed up," said Tinson. "Mines was knocked over, and then he hit another car that I have and it damaged it on the back end. So those were towed."

Several cars had to be towed, and there's still debris scattered across the parking lot. Police found the Tahoe with no one inside, near the intersection of Notthingham Way and Friar Tuck Lane.

"Everybody got messed up cars," said Washington. "People got to go to work, they can't go to work. I was suppose to be at church. People got places to go and we can't do anything."

Tinson says she's relieved that no one was injured.

"Waking up, we were just thankful that nobody was outside coming home," said Tinson.

Both Tinson and Washington have contacted their insurance companies.

No arrests have been made.
