Friday, Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrested Kenneth Allan Herring, 45, who is accused of driving a pickup truck involved in a hit-and-run crash, and then, leading pursuing deputies on a chase in Collier County.
At one point during the chase, the Herring is accused of driving the pickup truck in the wrong direction of traffic.
Deputies arrested Herring at the intersection with Pine Ridge Road and Livingston Road.
Deputies were able to get to him because the driver of the vehicle hit by the truck followed after the crash and kept deputies updated on the truck driver’s location.
The victim wasn’t the only one watching his move. A man we spoke to recorded the whole thing. From almost start to finish, he said he saw deputies chase and then stop the suspect.
Herring faces charges for DUI, leaving the scene of a crash, fleeing and eluding and resisting arrest without violence.
