Two flee truck crash


Police were called to a single vehicle accident on Saturday at 2:50 a.m.

The accident occurred in the 1400 block of Galerno Rd., when a 1998 GMC pickup crashed into a hedge.

Two males were seen running on foot and that led to an arrest of a 17-year-old at a nearby residence.

No one was hurt in the accident and a charge of failing to remain at the scene is being recommended to Crown counsel.
