Frederick, Md (KM) A Frederick man faces numerous charges in Frederick City and the county in connection with multiple hit and runs Tuesday morning.

The Sheriff’s Office says it all began in Frederick city at around 6:30 AM, when officers responded to a hit and run vehicle collision in the 100 block West 5th Street. Authorities say the suspect, identified as Kenneth Niblett, 59, started striking vehicles with his F-250 truck in an off-street parking area in the 100 block of West 5th Street, and continued eastbound to North East Street.

Police say while on North East Street, Niblett continued striking additional vehicles as he was heading out of Frederick City. Sheriff’s Deputies were notified.

Niblett went southbound on Tabler Road, crossing the center line and sideswiping a vehicle heading northbound. A quarter mile south of that location,  he hit another northbound vehicle, which disabled his truck.

Frederick Police officers responded to the scene and took Niblett into custody.

One of the drivers involved in the Tabler Road hit and run was treated for injuries at the scene; a second driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

“The Frederick Police Department wants to thank the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office for its assistance in this case and its work to keep residents safe form harm,” said Frederick Police Chief Jason Lando, in a statement. “The interagency collaboration is critical in minimizing harm during incidents that cross into multiple jurisdictions.”
