It happened just before 3 a.m. Thursday on Sustella Avenue, right next to the Valdosta State University campus.

Luckily, officers said no injuries were reported from residents. 

"Not that we found," said Lt. Adam Bembry, "And when we got there the vehicle was abandoned, doors opened, and nobody was in it."

Officers are following leads to find the driver.
