A Goshen man faces charges from a hit-and-run crash in which the driver of the other vehicle tailed him until police caught up.

Henrry Carbajal-Martinez, 32, 602 College Ave., is jailed on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, driving without a license and leaving the scene of a crash.

A car driven by Carbajal-Martinez had allegedly rear-ended an SUV that was stopped at Ind. 15 and U.S. 33. Carbajal-Martinez then drove off without stopping, and the driver of the SUV, James Hamilton of Goshen, followed him while calling 911, Goshen police said in a report.

Police found Carbajal-Martinez’s car in the 1400 block of South Main Street, and he was arrested following a traffic stop. He told an officer he didn’t remember striking another vehicle, but noticed damage to his car that wasn’t there before, according to the report.

Hamilton and a passenger in his SUV, Carla Hamilton, went to Goshen Hospital to receive treatment for neck and back pains, the report shows.
