A car took out bollards, crashed into a wall and the driver fled.
His female passenger was treated at the scene and later taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.
The crash happened in High Street, Cottenham near the Co-op store last night (Sunday).
Emergency services were called and the road was blocked while fire crews dealt with the incident.
A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “A search for the driver was carried out by officers and an investigation is ongoing.
“No arrests have yet been made.”
The spokesperson added: “We were called at 7.35pm yesterday (24 October) with reports of a collision in High Street, Cottenham.

“A car had driven into a building and the driver had left the scene.
“Paramedics attended and a woman, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital for treatment."
The driver told one resident his brakes had failed.
Local residents say a bollard was taken out during an earlier crash and four weeks a resident’s wall was hit by a car coming in the opposite direction.
And two months ago, a woman was injured in a nearby house when a car came off the road and hit her wall.
