A man was arrested in connection with hit-and-run and driving under the influence after crashing into a wall in front of Boulder City High School at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, police said today.
Boulder City Police officers arrested 38-year-old Francisco Miranda after he struck a vehicle on Nevada Highway and continued driving toward downtown Boulder City, police said.
Authorities said a 52-year-old Henderson man used his cell phone to call police, reporting that he had been rear-ended by a Dodge pickup truck while turning into a parking lot at Jack-in-the-Box, police said.
The man told police he followed the pickup truck and kept updating officers as the truck made a series of right turns, failed to stop at several stop signs and sped through a residential area before crashing into the high school's wall.
A police officer arrested Miranda as he left his truck and he was taken to the Henderson City Jail with bail set at $14,000. No one else was in Miranda's pickup truck, police said.
