The driver of a pickup truck left a trail of destruction after crashing multiple times last evening.

The driver of the truck, a man, was taken to hospital with unknown injuries after crashing his vehicle at least three separate times. The first collision, which happened on Rennies Mill Road near Bannerman Park, left a parked car with significant damage and debris strewn across the road. A third vehicle was also, struck, causing only minor damage.

A short while later the same truck left the road and crashed into a retaining wall at the intersection of Portugal Cove Road and Glenridge Crescent , sending stone flying and dislodging the cap from over the trucks bed.

The truck finally came to a stop up the road at the corner of First Avenue and Portugal Cove Road, after it crossed oncoming traffic and collided with a telephone pole. The three separate impacts caused extensive damage to the vehicle.

A resident in the area reported hearing tires squealing prior to a loud bang, which was followed by squealing tires once again.

The driver, a man in his 40s, has been charged with failure to remain at the scene of an accident. Police say further charges are anticipated.
