A Parkersburg man is behind bars Wednesday night for ramming his car into a utility pole then fleeing the scene of an accident.

Live lines were thrown throughout the roadway at 14th and Liberty Streets.

Police say 23-year-old David Morland crashed his Oldsmobile around 12:30, then ran on foot. A witness called 9-1-1 leading officers to the 1,500 block of Staunton Avenue where he was walking along the street.

Moreland is charged with leaving the scene of an accident and second offence driving on a revoked license. Other charges are pending.
