One, two ... two car crashes
A Geneva man crashed his pickup on July 27 after reportedly driving away from an earlier wreck, according to a police report. William Thomas Hunz, 33, of 609 N. Lincoln Ave., faces charges of reckless driving, leaving the scene of a crash and also was cited for several traffic citations.
The first crash happened at the Indiana and South Third streets, where Hunz allegedly tried to pass someone in a Ford Ranger on the left who was in the middle of making a left-hand turn, according to the police report. After the driver of the Ranger told Hunz she was calling the police, he reportedly said that seeing his license plate was enough and drove quickly away. While on Indiana Street, Hunz nearly hit a Bobcat being used for sewer repairs and lost control of his truck, eventually hitting a tree. He was arrested, charged and given a court date.
