A Denison man was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly struck and injured two teenagers with his vehicle and then left the scene of the collision.
Denison Police Department Lt. Mike Eppler said David Crawford, 69, was arrested Saturday night for failure to remain at the scene of an accident resulting in injury or death. The incident occurred outside Crawford’s home in the 900 block of West Shepherd Street at approximately 5:45 p.m..
“The guy was backing out his driveway and struck two teenagers on a bicycle and just kept going, just drove off,” Eppler said. “He returned home a little bit later and he got arrested.”
Eppler said both of the teenage boys sustained injuries that were not life threatening and were transported by ambulance to Texoma Medical Center for treatment.
“One of them may possibly have a broken leg,” Eppler said. “The other one, I’m not quite sure what type of injuries he ended up with.”
Eppler said motorists are required to remain at the scene of the collision if it results in property damage or the injury of another person.
“Anybody who thinks that they have, in any way, struck someone, something or another vehicle, they need to stop immediately,” Eppler said. “And of course, for the persons involved, they need to see if they need medical attention.”
Crawford was booked into Grayson County Jail and released on a $10,000 surety bond Monday. It was unclear whether he had appointed an attorney as of Monday afternoon and no phone number was listed for Crawford to be reached for comment.
