Lexington police arrested a man they say ran away from a crash scene late Wednesday night.
Witnesses say an SUV was speeding along Muir Station Road when the driver lost control, clipped a tree and smashed through about 50 feet of fencing. Police say the witnesses stopped to check on the men inside. They say the pair seemed fine and took off running. Investigators say officers searched the SUV and found a syringe in the center console, beer cans thrown outside and two cases of beer nestled under a pine tree.
Police arrested Walter Castio Agular, 25 and charged him with leaving the scene of an accident, and driving without insurance or a license.
