The second SUV was captured on a surveillance camera.

An 83-year-old man was unloading groceries in his driveway in the 15900 block of Evergreen about 3:10 p.m. Tuesday when a northbound driver in a Dodge Journey "lost control of her vehicle and collided into the victim’s vehicle (Buick Century), striking him then fleeing," investigators said in a statement.
