Police in Red Oak say a local man was cited for Failure to Yield half of the roadway and Leaving the Scene of an Accident, following a collision Thursday morning on east Summit Street. Officials say 23-year old Kiley Brian Caron, of Red Oak, was traveling east on east Summit at around 11:25-a.m., when his 1998 Chevy Monte Carlo crossed the center line and struck a utility trailer being pulled by a 2004 Chevy pickup, driven by 23-year old Joshua Lee Porter, of Red Oak, as Porter was traveling west.
Following the collision, Caron continued east on east Summit until he reached the intersection of North Boundary and turned south onto Boundary and went over a curb, nearly hitting a sign before continuing south. While police were investigating the first accident, they received word from a witness who followed the Monte Carlo to 1000 Highland Avenue, where officers caught up to Caron.
During their investigation, police determined the right front side of Caron’s car hit the corner of the home at 1000 Highland Avenue. Officials say when the man entered his driveway, he was traveling too fast. His car went up on a bank next to the driveway and back down the slope to the driveway before hitting the house, causing $1,000 damage to the structure.
Caron’s car sustained $2,000 damage. No dollar amount of damage was listed for the trailer being pulled by Porter’s pickup. No injuries were reported.
