  • Police in Valley City have arrested a man following a hit-and-run accident.
    Police Chief Fred Thompson says officers tracked down the 54-year-old man using a license plate that was found at the scene.
    Thompson says a witness reported seeing the man driving through a stop sign, striking a fence and then a light pole. No one was injured.
    Thompson says police ran the license plate number through state records and used the information to locate a 2000 Nissan Maxima in a parking lot. Thompson says officers then interviewed the man, who showed signs of being intoxicated.
    The man is facing preliminary charges of driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license and leaving the scene of an accident.
