TIPP CITY, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a driver who fled the scene of a traffic collision eventually crashed his truck in a nearby cornfield causing a fire resulting in thousands of dollars in damage.

Police say a man driving a pickup truck caused extensive damage when he crashed into two stopped vehicles at a traffic light Monday afternoon in Tipp City, north of Dayton. The driver then fled the scene.
