Local News

Champaign County, Ill. (WCIA) — Police found a truck they believe was involved in a hit-and-run over the weekend.

It happened at a small intersection right off Route 45 in Ludlow. The truck was found abandoned two miles away from the crash site. A woman found it and reported it to police.

Carlos Black says the speeding truck blew a stop sign and hit his car. It caused him to spin out.

Black’s airbags deployed, blocking his view. He could only hear the sound of the truck racing away.

Skid marks and debris still lay scattered across the road at the crash site.

Black was not seriously hurt, but says what is most disturbing is the disregard for human life.

“I would like to see the person face the charges of leaving the scene, and leaving someone that they didn’t even know if they were alive or not…get their justice,” says Black.
