A 20-year-old Forest County man cited with inattentive driving and failing to stop at an accident scene will also face criminal charges after investigators say he rear-ended another vehicle and drove away.
The crash happened on Pioneer St. near Wildwood Ave. in Crandon around 11 a.m. on Sept. 1. According to the criminal complaint the alleged victim said he slowed down because the driver in front of him was making a turn, that's when he said he was rear-ended.
The man said he got out of his car to exchange information with the person that hit him, but he says that's when the other driver took off. The man took down the vehicle's license plate number and gave that information to police.
Three people in the vehicle, a woman, and two children; ages 7 and 10, were transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police located the suspect's vehicle and the man is was registered to. Investigators say the owner, Greg Bradley initially denied any wrong doing and even volunteered to take a polygraph test.
Bradley is facing three charges of hit-and-run involving injury. He's expected to be formally charged on January 15.
