NORFOLK - A Norfolk man was arrested after a hit and run two vehicle accident in the 800 block of Glenwood Boulevard Thursday afternoon.

According to Norfolk Police Captain Mike Bauer, when officers arrived, they found a 2010 Dodge Journey resting on its top.

The female occupant had exited the vehicle by the time officers arrived, was treated by Norfolk Fire & Rescue, and transported to Faith Regional Health Services.

Officers learned that the Journey was southbound on Glenwood Boulevard and struck by a car that came out of the alley from the west, without stopping.

After the collision, the second vehicle left the area. Officers located the green Pontiac abandoned in the 800 block of South 11th Street.

A witness in the area saw the car get abandoned and provided a detailed description of the male driver. The registered owner of the vehicle had loaned the car to a neighbor.

Speaking with this neighbor, officers learned that car had been loaned again to one of his friends identified as 41-year-old Efren Ignacio-Casmiro.

Officers spoke to Ignacio-Casmiro who was cooperative and honest about the accident. He was placed under arrest for failing to stop and render aid at the accident and cited for driving during revocation and failure to yield right of way.

He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
