At least one person was taken to the hospital Wednesday morning after a silver Honda hit another vehicle, flipped, and rolled onto the roadside just after 6 a.m.

The accident occurred on the eastbound I-10 just west of the Bob Hope Drive overpass.

A witness at the scene said the speeding Honda was trying to pass between a big rig and another vehicle when the accident occurred.

Officers learned that the silver Honda had been racing with a red Honda and a green Honda at the time of the accident, but those two cars fled the scene and have not been located.

Injuries caused by the accident were said to be non life-threatening.
