A sport utility vehicle hit a MedStar ambulance on Interstate 30 on Sunday morning and drove away before police arrived on the scene, authorities said.

The vehicle was later located near Ridgmar Mall, but police did not find the driver.

No one was injured in the collision.

The incident occurred shortly before 8:30 a.m. Sunday in the 6800 block of the West Freeway.

“They were not responding to a call,” MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said. “They were traveling to a location when the ambulance was hit by the SUV.”

There were two crew members in the ambulance, Zavadsky said.

The collision disabled the ambulance, officials said.

Police found the SUV near the mall in west Fort Worth and searched the area, but they did not find the driver.
