TOWN OF FULTON

A town of Fulton man was hit by a pickup truck while he worked at the end of his driveway Sunday, according to a town police news release.

Police identified the man as Hunter Osborne, 19, who was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the release.

The truck’s driver, William O. Hoge, 78, of Milton was driving south on Hillside Road and hit a mailbox in another driveway and then hit Osborne in his driveway and drove away, police believe.

Hoge was arrested on charges of hit-and-run involving a vehicle, failure to notify police of an accident and failure to control his vehicle, according to the release. He was released with a court date, said town police Sgt. Zachary Raby.

Raby said there was no indication that Hoge was impaired by alcohol or drugs.

The incident was reported at 12:05 p.m., when police, Edgerton fire and EMS units, and the Rock County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the 11000 block of Hillside Road.
