LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Shepherdsville man has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident after police say he was involved in a head-on crash with another vehicle, then left the scene without offering help.
According to police citation, it happened on Dec. 30, when the victim was driving a $32,000 vehicle that he or she had just purchased a week earlier.
Police say the victim was stopped at a red light near the corner of Taylorsville Road and Hikes Lane, when 28-year-old Jeffrey T. Skidmore turned onto Taylorsville Road, striking the victim's vehicle head-on and causing it to spin.
After the accident, Skidmore got out of his car and tried to open the victim's rear door. He then allegedly ran away, leaving his own disabled car and the victim at the intersection.
Police were called. The victim suffered soreness to his or her neck and an abrasion to the hand from the deployment of the air bag, according to police.
Officers say the $32,000 car -- which the victim had just purchased a week earlier -- was "most likely totaled."
Earlier this week, Skidmore was served a criminal summons for leaving the scene of an accident and failure to render aid.
