Illegal Alien Crashes Into San Angelo Power Pole and Flees the Scene
SAN ANGELO, TX — An illegal alien crashed a Chevy pickup into a power pole Friday afternoon near the intersection of 19th St. and Armstrong breaking the pole in half.
The unidentified man then fled the scene and San Angelo Police Officers tracked him to a house in the 4000 block of Armstrong.
SAPD Investigating officer Welch said the Chevy 1500 hit the pole and spun around then the driver left the scene. AEP crews were called to repair the pole.
Welch said the suspect told police he was in the U.S. illegally. Welch said they couldn’t confirm that with the Border Patrol, so the man was not arrested.
Welch says the illegal alien was issued three citations; one for failure to stop and leave information at the scene of an accident, failure to control speed, and no driver’s license.
