COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) - Remember the hit and run crash in January where a man was struck by a vehicle, then thrown into the path of an oncoming snow plow?
Now Illinois State Police have made an arrest in the case.
52-year-old Jeffrey Cox of Edwardsville is charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury crash. Cox turned himself in this morning (Thursday). He’s been released on bail.
