FREDERICK, Md. (WDVM) — A man has been arrested after an early-morning hit and run in Frederick County on Tuesday.

The Frederick Police Department arrested 59-year-old Kenneth Niblett Jr., who is from Frederick. FPD responded to the 100 block of West 5th Street for the report of a vehicle collision around 6:30 a.m. Police said that Niblett was driving a truck from a parking area in the 100 block of West 5th Street before heading along North East Street, hitting cars along the way. Some of these cars were occupied.

Niblett left Frederick after that, and deputies from the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched.
