Local police arrested a Rochelle man Tuesday following a hit and run incident Monday night.
Reports indicate that 30-year old John Anderson was traveling south bound on Dement Road when his car hit the curb and then the guardrail. Police say that Anderson then lost control of the vehicle as it traveled down the overpass hill.
The local man then fled the area on foot. Anderson was arrested after he tried to report the car stolen yesterday morning.
Charges include leaving the scene of an accident, driving in the wrong lane, and improper lane usage.
Anderson was also arrested for unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia when police found a pipe inside the car.
