    The driver of a black BMW ran from the scene of a two-car crash that injured two people Sunday night on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley.

    The crash occurred near the freeway's interchange with the 405 Freeway in Sherman Oaks.

    The BMW sedan driver collided with a white Honda CRV on the northbound side of the 101 Freeway, causing the Honda to overturn, according to the California Highway Patrol. The occupants of the white 2006 Honda were a 41-year-old Woodland Hills  woman and a 32-year-old Santa Clarita man who suffered major injuries and were  transported to Northridge Hospital for treatment.

    Crash investigators found the BMW sedan -- its airbag deployed -- nearby against a guardrail, but the driver had already left the scene, according to authorities. A police helicopter crew and K9 unit searched for the driver.

    No arrests were reported Monday morning.

    Video showed debris scattered across several lanes, which were closed during the crash investigation.
