A Massachusetts man is facing charges of operating his pickup truck under the influence after he left the scene of a crash Monday night.
Oxford police said Roland Hurley, 56, of Worcester, was charged with the seventh OUI following Monday night’s hit-and-run crash.
Police said the driver whose vehicle had been struck followed the suspect’s vehicle, which left the scene traveling southbound on I-395.
According to police, Hurley exited the highway at Cudworth Road, veered north onto Main Street, then parked the vehicle and fled into the woods.
Police said after two K-9 dogs were closing in on Hurley, he exited the woods and was taken into custody.
Hurley’s license had been revoked in September. The Oxford police chief said Hurley had previously been charged with OUI in Bristol, Wareham, Hingham, Brockton, Lynn and Taunton.
He’s facing charges of OUI Liquor fourth offense or greater, leaving the scene of a personal injury crash, leaving the scene of a property damage crash, operation of a motor vehicle with a revoked license, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and receiving stolen property.
