A Franklinville, New York, man is facing charges for allegedly running from police after a hit and run crash early Friday morning on Route 155 near Route 120 in Cameron County.
Police say 26-year-old Brandon Cole fell asleep at the wheel of his SUV, causing it to leave the road and hit a road sign and a utility pole. Cole then drove away from the scene.
A witness called police, who saw the SUV pull into a driveway on West Fourth Street in Emporium. Cole got out of the vehicle and ran away but, after a short foot chase, police caught up with him and charged him with DUI, resisting arrest and traffic violations.
He’s free on $2,500 bail.
