Savannah Police are looking for the drivers who sideswiped an SPD cruiser and took off.

An official with the Savannah Police Department says one of his officers was traveling northbound on Waters Avenue near Hampton Street around 4 a.m. Tuesday morning when a dark colored SUV traveling in the opposite direction on Waters crossed over the center line, striking the left rear driver’s side of the police cruiser.
