A Brookville man is cited for his alleged involvement in a hit and run accident over the weekend.
Salina Police Capt. Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that the crash occurred at the intersection of S. 8th St. and South St. at 7:10 a.m. on Saturday.
A 2000 Ford F250 truck was traveling southbound on 8th St. when it failed to stop at the stop sign with South St. The truck then struck a 2019 Toyota Camry on the driver’s side and left the scene.
The driver of the Camry, 63-year-old Eugene Hardy, Salina, suffered minor neck pain in the crash but refused treatment. He was able to provide SPD with a tag of the truck that hit his vehicle.
His vehicle was towed away.
The tag provided by Hardy did not come back to a Ford pickup, but an address in Brookville.
Saline County Sheriff’s deputies then went to the address and located a truck that had front end damage and the tag provided by the victim.
They then located the suspected driver, 18-year-old Ty Chalmers, Brookville. He is cited with failure to stop at a stop sign, no proof of insurance, failure to stop and report a crash and an illegal tag.
