ATLANTA (AP) — Police are searching for a woman who appeared to be wearing a "Beetlejuice" costume when she damaged a car in a hit-and-run crash in southeast Atlanta.

WSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1jKtNeH) that surveillance video shows the suspect's car nearly flipped when it hit a Mercedes-Benz parked on the street. The video shows the driver getting out and inspecting the damage after the crash. A photo taken by a neighbor shows that the woman was wearing a costume from the film "Beetlejuice."

Minutes later, two other costumed men arrived and helped the driver push the woman's car off the parked Mercedes.

Hillary Meador, the owner of the Mercedes, says she fears the car is totaled and blames the driver for taking off.

The neighbor's photo captured a license plate number, which has been turned over to police.
