Amarillo, TX - A man is under arrest following a hit and run crash in east Amarillo.

Police say at 11:00 Thursday night, a pick-up driving on Southeast 22nd ran a stop sign at Bolton Street, causing a crash with another car traveling through that intersection.

The pick-up rolled into a nearby utility pole and came to rest on its passenger side. Within the hour, police caught up with the driver of the pick-up, who reportedly ran from the scene on foot, in the 4600 block of South Bonham.

40 year-old Michael Ray Kennedy has been charged with failure to stop and render aid at an accident with serious bodily injury, and a traffic warrant.

The driver of the car and one passenger in the pick-up were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
