The Dover Police Department arrested Brian Krolick, 25 of Dover, following a hit and run collision on Friday morning, according to Dover Police Department Public Information Office Sergeant Mark Hoffman.

Hoffman said at approximately 12:10 a.m. officers received a call for a motor vehicle collision in the 200 Block of North Governors Avenue where Krolick’s vehicle struck the rear of another vehicle occupied by two people.

Krolick fled the scene, however, a witness continued to provide location updates over the phone. Arriving officers observed Krolick running into an alley near Lakewood Place and Columbia Avenue and was arrested without incident.
