HEBER DUNES — A woman fled the scene of an accident after an El Centro man driving a motorcycle collided with her vehicle on Friday.

According to a California Highway patrol press release, Robert Jenson, 49, was driving east on Heber Road behind a vehicle described as a 1980s Oldsmobile at about 7:30 a.m.

The Oldsmobile started to slow as it approached Mets Road. Jenson thought the vehicle was pulling to the right side so he attempted to pass the car on the left.
