Idaho Teen Leaves Trail after Hit and Run
POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — An eastern Idaho teenager police say fled the scene of a two-vehicle, non-injury crash left a trail of dripping radiator fluid that led to a Pocatello shopping mall.
Police say the young driver also left behind the license plate from the Dodge Durango involved in the Monday afternoon crash. The teen was located about 3:20 p.m. and cited for leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license, then released. Police haven't released a name.
Authorities tell the Idaho State Journal that the teenager crashed into a Ford Escort driven by a 50-year-old Pocatello man. The man spotted the Durango's license plate in the road and retrieved it for police. The crash occurred about the time students were leaving nearby Pocatello High School.
