A driver accused of fleeing a Monday wreck after striking a utility pole was charged with DUI and hit-and-run, Columbus police said.
Anthony D. Rogers, 22, of Columbus also faces charged of driving while his license was suspended and no proof of insurance, reports state.
According to police, a witness saw Rogers collide with a utility pole in the area of Shelby Street and Fort Benning Road. An officer stopped Rogers and noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from him.
