State Police are searching for one of the drivers involved in a highway crash in Danbury.  The accident closed two lanes of I-84 westbound between exits 5 and 4 for all of the morning commute.  State Police say two cars were headed westbound just before exit 4 around 3:45am when one sideswiped the other. 

Both cars left the road and a driver fled the scene on foot.  All occupants sustained minor injuries.  No enforcement action has been taken at this point.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Trooper Lopez at 203-267-2200. 

One man, a 41-year old Brookfield resident, was ejected from the vehicle and transported to Danbury Hospital. 

Two occupants in the other car, 33 and 34 year olds from Ridgefield, refused medical attention.  The second car was located in a wooded area near Scuppo Road with no occupants. Firefighters and police searched the area, but were unable to locate the driver.

At one point during the commute, the DOT was estimating it would take drivers two hours to get from Waterbury through Danbury,
