TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – One person is behind bars while another was sent to the hospital after a Thursday morning hit and run.

It happened around 9:15 at 3rd and Cherry Streets in Terre Haute.

Police say Curtis hit a truck and then sped off towards 1st Street.

A witness told News 10 she dumped the vehicle near the Circle K gas station.

Authorities found Curtis hiding in bushes on the Boys and Girls Club property.
