TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Topeka police say three people fled the scene of a hit-and-run accident, forcing the evacuation of a Topeka high school.

Shawnee County Sheriff’s Lt. Danny Lotridge told The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1JhgFIh) one person was taken into custody near the scene of the accident, which occurred Tuesday afternoon, and three other people fled.

Employees were evacuated from the Topeka High School after a person matching the description of the driver reportedly entered the building. Law enforcement searched the building but didn’t find anyone. Employees were allowed back later Tuesday afternoon.

The crash occurred when two cars collided in traffic. The driver of one of the cars suffered minor injuries but didn’t seek medical treatment.

Police said the other car fled the scene before coming to a stop when the three fled.
