Pennsylvania police say that charges are pending against a truck driver after a bizarre hit and run incident that ended in an alleged assault.
The incident occurred early on the morning of November 1 in Crescent Township, Pennsylvania.
Police say that a Missouri-based truck driver became lost in a residential neighborhood. While presumably looking for a way out of the neighborhood, police say that the truck driver “ran over several stop signs, and street signs, as well as mailboxes.”
When neighborhood resident Jeremiah Hall left his house to check on his dog, the truck driver approached Hall and began speaking, but Hall, who is deaf, could not understand him.
“I had no idea he was talking, and then he pushed me. He grabbed me about my throat,” And I got mad, and was going to follow him, and I thought I’d better not, so I turned around and came back home,” Hall told CBS Pittsburgh.
The truck driver left the scene after the altercation with Hall.
Crescent Township Police were later able to locate the driver and they say he will be charged: “The case has been solved. The company has been made aware, they are providing video footage of the events to the department. Charges will be pending, once our investigation is complete. The driver is allegedly from Missouri and is currently heading into the companies terminal in Kentucky.”
Town officials say that this is not the first time that a lost trucker has entered the neighborhood and that they plan to put up more signs to keep big rigs away.
