A 45-year-old Saco man has been charged in connection with an alleged hit-and-run incident Saturday morning in Saco in which an 87-year-old woman was seriously injured. Saco Police Chief Bradley Paul says his department received a couple of phone calls that lead them to the white pickup truck believed to have struck the woman.
"We responded to 46 Ocean Park Road and located a truck with damage consistent with having been involved in an accident and consistent in particular with the damage we expected to find in relationship to the accident," Paul says.
After impounding the truck, Saco police took Leo Bedard into custody on several outstanding arrest warrants. Paul says that, during a court appearance this morning on the outstanding warrants, Bedard was charged with one felony count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
