HIT-AND-RUN: Man Arrested Overnight
A 22-year old is behind bars after hitting another car and taking off.
Just before 1 a.m Thursday, police say Taylor Ely was speeding along I-235 when he rear-ended another car at Cummings Parkway.
Ely’s car then lost control and hit the concrete barrier on the side of the road.
Witnesses say Ely got out, checked for damage and drove away. Police caught up with him near 73rd Street.
Ely was arrested and now faces charges of OWI, failure to maintain control, and hit and run.
Paramedics took the couple in the car Ely hit to the hospital. Officers say they had minor injuries. A passenger with Ely was checked by medics but did not go to the hospital.
