A 45-year-old Medford man was issued appearance tickets after police said he crashed his pickup truck into a utility pole in Farmingville late Tuesday, then fled the scene.
The crash occurred on Blue Point Road at 11:53 p.m., Suffolk County police said. Police, who did not release the identity of the driver, said he fled the scene on foot — but was not injured in the crash.
The driver was issued tickets for leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident and for aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
He was scheduled to appear in First District Court in Central Islip on March 31.
