Last Thursday, the Leitchfield Police Department received a report of a hit and run. According to a release from the department, the incident occurred at the intersection of William Thompson Byway and South Main Street.

He continued on to South Main Street, and struck several more vehicles at a stop light, then several more parked vehicles in the lot of a business. The driver, Christopher Bell of Mammoth Cave, Kentucky, was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, fleeing or evading police, wanton endangerment, resisting arrest, and careless driving, with additional charges pending.
