Jennings police are investigating a two-vehicle crash that may be connected to a dispute earlier in the day.

Jennings Police Chief Danny Semmes says they are investigating the crash as a criminal act.

After speaking to witnesses, Semmes says the crash, which occurred on November 25 on Grace Street and Anna Street, may have been intentional.  Chief Semmes says the drivers of both vehicles are in a relationship and had a dispute earlier.

Home surveillance video shows a vehicle driving at an increased speed and hitting another vehicle on its left side, damaging both vehicles.  The driver of the vehicle that was hit was transported to a local hospital with a broken leg.

The investigation is ongoing and no arrest has been made at this time.  The driver could be facing aggravated battery charges.
