Hit-And-Run Crash Leads Sacramento Police To Pipe Bomb

(AP) — Sacramento police reopened a street Saturday evening after safely disabling a live pipe bomb dropped during a hit-and-run crash.

Sacramento police said the pipe bomb appeared to have fallen off a car that hit another vehicle and fled the scene Saturday.

Television station KCRA reported Saturday evening that police were looking for the car, described as a white Chevy "camper style" van with ladders and blue stripes.

Police say that in addition to the pipe bomb, the suspect also left behind power tools, syringes, camouflage clothing and fishnet stockings.

Police closed down 65th Street between 4th Avenue and Broadway for more than two hours while the bomb squad dealt with the pipe bomb. Several area businesses were also evacuated.

No one was injured in the crash.

No other details have been released.
