22-year-old Steven Clarke Jr. was involved in a hit-and-run collision near Saundersville Road and Andrew Jackson Parkway on the night of March 30th. When officers arrived, they spoke with the other driver, Ashley Noble, and two witnesses, Aaron Boyd and David Foster. They advised officers that a white sedan drove into Noble’s vehicle, leaving bruises and cuts on her face, and left the scene. One of the witnesses added that he followed Clarke Jr. to a Morgan Drive address. Officers went and located a white sedan with heavy front-end damage, which matched the description they were given. When officers arrived, Clarke Jr.’s father approached them, and they asked him if he had been driving the car. Clarke Jr.’s father replied, “No, that was my son. He is inside.” He then went to retrieve Clarke Jr. for the police. When Clarke Jr. came back outside, officers noticed he had a laceration on his lip consistent with having been in a vehicle collision. Clarke Jr. also showed signs of disorientation and matched Noble’s description. During the officers’ investigation, they located a beer can on the floorboard of his vehicle. Clarke Jr. was taken into custody for failure to file a report of an accident with injury or damage, failure to give information/render aid, leaving the scene of an accident, and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
