The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of two individuals in connection with a accident on Serven Road on August 15.
Kevin Ardnt, 30, is alleged to have been driving north on Serven Road when he lost control, crashing into a telephone pole, injuring a passenger.
Instead of reporting the accident, Ardnt and the passenger reportedly fled on foot.
On August 21 he was arrested on charges including fleeing the scene of a personal injury accident and other traffic violations.
Additionally, Jessica Law, 47, was arrested earlier the same day.
Deputies charged Law with providing a false written statement, in which she falsely claimed to have been the driver during the accident, in an apparent attempt to shield Ardnt.
Both will answer the charges at a later date.
