HUNTINGBURG — Police made an arrest after taking a Sunday night call reporting a hit-and-run.
The Huntingburg Police Department was notified at 9:42 p.m. that Kaden Gogel’s 1991 Ford F-150 pickup truck that had been parked at the curb outside his 102 E. 22nd St. residence had been rear-ended by what witnesses described as a light-colored Nissan sedan.
Witnesses said the passenger car backed up after the collision and drove from the scene, turning southbound onto Chestnut Street.
Later in the evening, police said, an officer located a Nissan with damage consistent with what had been described. Police then made contact with Mauricio B. Hernandez, 43, 1709 Redbud Court, who allegedly admitted to the collision and to fleeing the scene in fear of getting in trouble.
Authorities booked Hernandez into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:03 a.m. today on a preliminary misdemeanor count of leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
