Los Angeles police continued to search Wednesday afternoon for a limo driver who slammed into an exotic car repair shop, damaging a Ferrari and Lamborghini and severely injuring his passenger.

The hit-and-run driver abandoned his Lincoln Town car at the upscale shop and left the 33-year-old woman on the sidewalk after pulling her from his vehicle. She was being treated at a hospital for a broken pelvis, broken jaw and fractured right leg.

The limo driver was traveling north on La Cienega Boulevard when he lost control of his car, plowing into Specialty Car Craft about 3:30 a.m.

The impact damaged a yellow Ferrari and a red Lamborghini parked inside the shop. Detectives were examining security cameras at a nearby fast-food restaurant for potential evidence.

Detectives with LAPD's West Bureau Traffic Division are asking anyone with information to contact detectives at (213) 473-0234.
