James Michael Bradwell, 33, of Calgary is facing charges after a serious hit-and-run Saturday morning sent a woman to hospital with serious injuries.
Bradwell has been charged with one count each of hit and run causing injury, hit and run – property and refusal to provide a breath sample, according to the Calgary Police Service.
Around 12:40 a.m. a car with two occupants was struck by a pickup truck at John Laurie Boulevard and 14 Street N.W.
A male victim suffered minor injuries, while a female victim suffered serious injuries and was transported to hospital by EMS.
Police allege Bradwell fled the scene and was arrested a short time later after an off-duty officer noticed a truck with fresh damage. He contacted the District Sergeant and continued to follow the vehicle while directing marked units to the location.
Once marked units came on scene, police say Bradwell bailed out of the vehicle and fled on foot into the darkness in the community of North Haven. Police quickly contained the area. As the offender attempted to elude officers by running through the yards, numerous citizens contacted police his location.
With the assistance of the HAWC helicopter the offender was spotted attempting to hide in a residential area. Bradwell was subsequently taken into custody by Canine and patrol officers without incident.
Bradwell’s next court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2011.
