Chaney Jones Faces Charges From Hit And Run Collision
A Glenrock man is facing charges in a case where he's accused of being involved in a collision, and then leaving the scene.
Thirty-year old Chaney Jones has pleaded not guilty to one charge of aggravated assault and battery, one count of no insurance, and one count of leaving the scene of an accident.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says in October, a Colorado man was working underneath a stalled SUV on the shoulder of I-25, east of Casper, when the SUV was hit by another vehicle driven by Jones, who did not stop to render aid to the victim.
it turned out Jones ran over both of the victim's legs and then sideswiped the SUV, tearing off the driver's side door.
Patrol troopers were able to get a description on Jones' vehicle from witnesses, and later spotted him approaching Glenrock and arrested him.
Prosecutors mentioned that this is not the first time that Jones has been arrested for no insurance, and they have requested that he forfeit his vehicle registration and license plates until that situation is resolved.
Jones is free on $50,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison, on the aggravated assault and battery charge, up to six months in jail, on the no insurance charge, and up to 20 days in jail, on the leaving the scene of an accident charge if convicted.
