A Buffalo teenager who crashed a stolen car into the city fire department’s Rescue I vehicle and fled the scene early Saturday at East Utica Street and Jefferson Avenue was arrested Monday, authorities said.
Gregg E. Daniels, 19, of the 400 block of West Ferry Street, has been charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and fleeing the scene of a property damage accident following an investigation by the Accident Investigation Unit.
After colliding with the emergency vehicle at about 8:50 a.m., Daniels allegedly fled from the stolen 2004 Saturn on foot with an 8-year-old cousin who was also in the car, police said.
Leads pursued by investigators and police officers resulted in locating Daniels, who also was charged with driving without a license.
