A city man was charged for two alcohol-related crashes near Bellefontaine Monday night.

The Logan County Sheriff's Office responded to a two-vehicle wreck at the intersection of County Road 11 and South Troy Road (near Belletech) around 9:50 p.m.

Jose Garcia Jimenez, 24, of 1231 Carlisle Avenue, was driving a '99 Jeep Grand Cherokee southbound on Troy Road when he rear-ended a 2007 Ford truck driven by Danny Ramirez, 22, of Springfield.

Jimenez fled the scene. About fifteen minutes later, he was involved in a one-vehicle crash in the 2000 block of County Road 18. His Jeep went off the right side of the road and struck a telephone junction box.

There were no injuries in either crash.

Both vehicles suffered minor damage.
