STANDISH — No one was hurt in what is believed to have been a hit-and-run accident in Standish June 20, but the driver of an automobile involved allegedly fled the scene after the incident.
Undersheriff Donald McIntyre said the accident occurred at approximately 1:11 p.m. A car traveling southbound on Front Street reportedly ran the stop sign at the intersection of Front and Cedar streets, impacting a Ford F-150 pulling a trailer eastbound on Cedar Street, McIntyre said.
After colliding with the driver’s side of the cab of the truck, the second vehicle reportedly left the scene of the accident.
