Teen flees scene of crash, charged with drug driving

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with drug driving and several other offences after he allegedly fled the scene of a crash on Warwick Allora Rd yesterday afternoon.

Police allege they were alerted by a witness after the man veered off the road to avoid collision with another car and collected a number of road signs.

The boy then allegedly continued driving north, failing to stop and report the damage.

The Toowoomba teenager was found by police at a Deuchar address and was charged with driving under the influence with drugs, driving without undue care and attention and failing to fulfil duties at a crash.
