LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Authorities have arrested a man accused in a hit-and-run crash in Little Rock that badly injured the wife of an Arkansas state representative.
Arkansas State Police on Wednesday arrested 26-year-old Brett Crisel of Little Rock after a caller tipped where Crisel was.
Police say they were able to match vehicle parts from the scene and a partial license tag number to Crisel's vehicle.
Rep. Roy Ragland, R-Marshall, and his wife Gail were driving downtown Monday night when they were broadsided. Gail Ragland was hospitalized in intensive care.
Crisel faces multiple charges. No bond has been set yet.
Little Rock police spokesman Lt. Terry Hastings says Crisel told officers he became frightened after the crash and fled.
