Police say a collision that saw a driver flee on foot has lead to charges against a 33-year-old Huron East man.
Around 3:30 Friday afternoon, first responders were called to a two-vehicle collision on Perth Line 86 east of Road 124 in Perth East.
According to police, a westbound sedan on Line 86 crossed the centre line and entered the eastbound lane with an eastbound pickup hauling a camper trailer having to swerve to avoid a head-on collision.
The westbound sedan struck the camper trailer resulting in damage to the trailer.
Police say the driver of the westbound sedan fled the collision scene on foot, while the driver of the pickup was not injured.
Officers searched the area for the man but he wasn’t located until later that day when a witness saw the suspect dropped off in Milverton and looking for a ride.
The man was arrested and charged with several offences including possessing counterfeit money and failing to comply with Probation Order.
