Columbia police are looking for 41-year-old Fitzgerald McNeil, who also goes by the name Jami Raqib Salaam. He's wanted for attempted murder in connection to an early Wednesday morning traffic accident on Millwood Avenue.

According to a Department statement, around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, McNeil, driving a 1986 Chevrolet Suburban, rammed the back of a 1999 Ford Explorer, which caused the Explorer to overturn.

An unnamed female passenger in the Explorer was thrown from the vehicle. She was taken to an area hospital with "severe" injuries. The unnamed male driver of the Explorer was treated at an area hospital and released.

McNeil reportedly abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot. Calling it a heinous crime, police believe the ramming was intentional and are seeking the public's help in locating McNeil.
