SAN MATEO (KRON) — A hit and run accident near the San Mateo Bridge toll plaza is prompting an active manhunt in Foster City Friday morning.

Investigators say the car that left the scene of the accident sped westbound across the bridge at about 5:15 a.m. at one point driving on a flat tire. The CHP says there are injuries from that wreck.

Witnesses say the car exited the freeway in Foster City and the driver bailed out near a hotel. Authorities thought he might be hiding in an open storage container behind the hotel but nothing was found.

Two kids say they later saw the man, armed with a handgun, running towards the levees in Foster City. An active police search is now underway.
