A 45-year old man is recovering Wednesday morning after officers said he was struck in an accident by a drunk driver.

That crash happened just after 11:30 p.m. Tuesday night on Kostoryz and S.P.I.D. Investigators said two cars were on the access road when a third slammed into the back of one and caused the other to hit a truck, pushing it into the middle of the intersection.

The driver responsible for the accident, who has not been identified, drove off before being caught by officers down the street.

He faces charges of drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident.
