ELK TWP., Pa. (EYT) – State police responded to a hit-and-run crash involving a Seneca man that occurred early Friday morning on State Route 208 in Elk Township.

Clarion-based State Police say the accident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Friday, November 29, as a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado was traveling southbound on Route 208 in Elk Township, Clarion County, when a deer entered the roadway.

According to police, the Chevrolet swerved to miss the deer and entered a ditch. The vehicle then proceeded southbound in the ditch, struck a mailbox, and then came to a final rest in the ditch on its side. This caused disabling damage to the vehicle by bending the drive train.

The driver of the vehicle was 37-year-old Kristofer L. Bloom, of Seneca.

Police say Kristofer was charged with the following offenses: failure to leave legally required insurance and contact information with the property owner and failure to notify police of the crash as required by law.

No injuries were reported.
