Multiple charges after hit-and-run

Kings District RCMP have arrested two people who are facing multiple charges after fleeing the scene of a two vehicle collision in Kingston.

Just before 11 a.m. on August 18, RCMP with Kingston Fire Department and EHS, responded to a collision involving a blue Volkswagen and a tan Ford on Main St. Three occupants of the Ford fled the scene of the collision on foot. The passenger of the Volkswagen was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. There were no injuries to the driver.

Police were able to identity the individuals who fled the scene and determined that the license plate on the vehicle was stolen. RCMP members with assistance from Police Dog Services located a female occupant of the vehicle and she was arrested and taken into police custody. Shortly after, following a chase on foot, police located and arrested a male occupant of the vehicle. The third occupant is known to police and has not been located at this time.

Corey Graves, 34, has been remanded and is facing the following charges:
