Police: Dover Man Struck Pedestrian, Fled Scene
Police allege a Dover man struck a pedestrian with his vehicle and fled the scene before ultimately being arrested.
Police said they responded to an incident on November 9 where a 63-year-old Dover resident said, as a pedestrian, he had been struck by a Toyota Camry operated by a male individual at the intersection of Washington Street and Arch Street. The pedestrian, who was transported and treated at an area emergency room, said the individual, later identified as Christopher L. Nash, 28, of Dover, fled the scene, police reported.
Officers said they found a Toyota Camry matching the description on Arch Street and subsequently contacted Nash on Belknap Street after obtaining an arrest warrant. Police said Nash turned himself in on November 16 and was held in preventative detention prior to his arraignment at Strafford County Superior Court.
Nash was arrested and charged with conduct after accident, a felony, as well as driving after revocation or suspension.
At the time of his arrest, Nash was also on bail stemming from a felonious sexual assault charge in February. That matter is also pending before the Strafford County Superior Court.
