Apple Valley residents helped police track down a hit-and-run suspect Monday afternoon. The driver of a black Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV crashed into a Liberty Utilities truck at the intersection of Navajo Road and Ottawa Road around 1:40 p.m.

Witnesses say the SUV was speeding down Navajo Road, then made a wide turn onto Ottawa Road and crashed into the utilities truck. According to witnesses, the SUV driver asked the truck driver if he was okay, then fled the scene.

A witness took photos of the SUV as it sped east on Ottawa Road, while another witness followed the driver and contacted police. Officers then arrested the hit-and-run suspect without incident. It does not appear that the Liberty Utilities driver was injured in the accident.

The intersection where the crash occurred is notorious for speeding and accidents, according to locals. There is no traffic signal at the intersection, which some residents believe contributes to the danger.
