Charges are placed in one crash.
A Frederick man is charged with several alcohol-related offenses following a traffic crash around 5:25 AM on Saturday. Christian Manuel Gamboa, 18, was apprehended following the accident on Monocacy Boulevard near the Costco and Travel Lodge.
Police say Gamboa was the operator of a vehicle which struck a curb. Authorities say Gamboa and a passenger tried to run away from the scene on foot. Gamboa was caught, but the passenger escaped. That person was last seen heading southbound through the Travel Lodge parking lot behind Costco.
In addition to the alcohol-related offenses, Gamboa is charged with hit and run, fleeing and eluding and driving without a license.
Frederick Police also investigated another crash late Friday night around 10:37. A vehicle traveling eastbound on Route 40A left the roadway near Blentlinger Road, slid along the grass, and came to rest on Western Avenue.
The operator was taken to Meritus Medical Center with unspecified injuries.
Charges are pending.
