Salem Man Goes To Prison For Possessing Stolen Truck Involved In Two Crashes
Zachary Goff of North Trenary was ordered to serve four and a half years in prison for having possession of the truck owned by 24-year-old Charles Hudson of South Rotan Street in Salem. He also pleaded guilty to a driving under the influence charge and was fined $500 and court costs.
Police reports indicate Goff fled the pickup truck on foot after it crashed through the fence at the Beck Bus Garage facility at the corner of Lake and South Marion Street. Goff gave up a short time later and was taken into custody.
A person with Goff was arrested for aggravated battery after allegedly striking Hudson in the face. Hudson was taken to Salem Township Hospital where he was treated for facial injuries.
