FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - A man was arrested Thursday night after crashing his pickup truck in southwest Fort Wayne.

Around 8:30 p.m., the Fort Wayne Police Department was called to the 8800 block of Covington Rd., where they found the unoccupied truck.

Witnesses say that the driver of the truck was following another driver closely, when the other driver brake checked.

The pickup truck swerved, left the roadway, crashed through a fence, hit a tree and stopped in a wooded area, police say.

The driver then fled on foot, but officers were able to apprehend him within blocks of the crash. Potential charges were not released.
