A RUNAWAY driver has been arrested in Alhaurin de la Torre after citizen collaboration helped track down the vehicle involved in a crash and its owner.
A man told the Local Police force that he had been involved in a crash with another car in the early hours of the morning on Avenida Cristobal Colon, but he had banged his head and fainted and when he came to the other car had disappeared.
Citizen collaboration allowed investigators to track down the car and its 25-year-old owner, originally from Ciudad Real, yet when he was told he would be charged with failing to provide assistance he tried to make a run for it.
Two officers took chase, the council reported, and after catching up with him nearby added a charge of disobedience due to his resistance.
