Posted: Updated:

A York County man has been charged for a hit-and-run crash that damaged a Middletown business over the weekend.

Rueben Jason Estrada, 30, of Dover, crashed into the Hurst Building at 29 South Union Street, causing serious damage to the front of the building, and then fled the scene at around 2 a.m. Sunday, according to Middletown Police Chief Steven Wheeler.

Estrada, who was taken into custody several blocks away, was under the influence of alcohol and did not have the owner's permission to operate the vehicle he was driving, Wheeler said.

He also refused to a blood-alcohol test, which could result in suspension of his operating privileges, police said.

Estrada was placed in Dauphin County Prison when it was discovered that he was wanted on warrants issued in York County, police said.
