Man charged with fleeing scene of crash at Southington truck stop



SOUTHINGTON — A North Dakota man is facing charges after police say he backed his truck into another truck, pinning the driver’s leg in the truck door.

The injured driver was taken to an area hospital with a possible broken leg.

Mohamood Ahmed, 26, of Grand Forks, North Dakota, was charged early Thursday morning with evading responsibility involving physical injury. He was initially held in lieu of $2,500 bond.

Police responded to the truck stop at 1875 Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike about 12:50 a.m. Thursday for a reported accident with injuries. Sgt. Jeffrey Dobratz said Ahmed was backing his truck into a parking space when it hit another truck. When Ahmed attempted to move his truck, the driver from the truck that was struck got out to look at the damage. Ahmed then struck the door of the truck and pinned the driver’s leg. Dobratz said Ahmed drove away and called police from Berlin about 2:47 a.m. to report the incident. Ahmed told police he fled the truck stop because he felt threatened by other drivers and didn’t know the other driver was injured, Dobratz said.
