Three vehicles caught fire late Tuesday in the 700 block of Washington Avenue after a car struck two parked vehicles and its driver allegedly fled the scene, the Hagerstown Police Department said Wednesday in a written release.
Just after 11:30 p.m., police discovered that two parked vehicles had been struck by a blue Monte Carlo. The car's gas tank ruptured and exploded, setting the vehicles on fire, the Hagerstown Police Department said.
Police allege the driver of the Monte Carlo, as well as a passenger, ran from the scene.
Glen Raymond Crawford, 25, of Hagerstown, was found at his residence and charged with leaving the scene of a property damage accident, speed greater than reasonable, reckless driving and driving while under the influence of alcohol in connection with Tuesday's crash, according to a police news release.
No one was seriously injured in the accident, police said.
Hagerstown Fire Department Battalion Chief Randy Myers said late Tuesday that the Monte Carlo was driven on the sidewalk along a portion of Washington Avenue before it crashed.
