OAKES, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say they have captured a man who ran away from the scene of an accident and into a corn field.

KOVC radio reports that the truck collided with another vehicle at the intersection of North Dakota Highway 1 and Dickey County Road 1 late Wednesday morning.

The Dickey County Sheriff's Office says it received a tip that the 37-year-old Fargo man was staying at a motel in Oakes under an alias. Deputies arrested him Thursday morning.

The man was transported by ambulance to the Oakes Community Hospital for injuries.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says he will be charged with leaving the scene of an injury accident, and additional charges are likely.
