BOONSBORO - Police say a Boonsboro man was driving under the influence of alcohol Saturday when he struck another vehicle, fled from police and struck a woman, according to charging documents filed in Washington County District Court.

Michael Anthony Yeagy, 48, of 234 S. Main St., faces 13 traffic charges, including DUI, attempting to elude police and failure to stop at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, according to court records.

Boonsboro Police Officer Shawn M. Faith wrote that at about 7 p.m., he saw Yeagy accelerate his pickup truck into the back of another vehicle headed east on North Main Street, then back off. The truck also crossed the center line at least five times, Faith wrote. When Faith pulled over the driver, he fled, driving more than 60 mph in a 30-mph zone and running a red light, Faith wrote.

The truck turned into a U-shaped driveway at 230 S. Main St. and Faith saw a woman, who apparently had been struck, roll out from underneath it, Faith wrote. The woman, Rachel Foote, 20, of 230 S. Main St., was not seriously injured, Faith said.

Yeagy continued around the driveway, turned back onto South Main Street and turned back into the driveway, at which point Faith and a Washington County Sheriff's Department deputy blocked him in, Faith wrote.

Yeagy was being held at the Washington County Detention Center on Monday on $75,000 bond.
