VANCOUVER -- The man who fled from a crash that injured five people in Vancouver last week has been identified and is still on the loose, police said.

The wreck was the result of an ongoing family dispute and assault culminating in a deliberate vehicle ramming, said Sgt. Fred Neiman of the Clark County Sheriff's Office.

Neiman said 34-year-old Justin Scott Fessel (pictured) drove his SUV into a car that had his mother, father and brother inside. It happened July 26 in the 7200 block of Northeast 147th Avenue.

Fessel's mother and father were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. His brother refused treatment and was jailed on a domestic violence charge stemming from acts of vandalism committed just prior to the crash, Neiman said.

Fessel left the scene after the crash and police have not been able to find him, Neiman said.

Fessel is wanted on assault and hit-and-run charges. Anyone with information on his whereabouts was asked to call 911.
