One man was taken to a hospital and another was arrested Saturday following a hit-and-run vehicle crash on state Highway 500 in Vancouver.

According to the Washington State Patrol, two vehicles, a Dodge Durango and a Mazda pickup truck, were traveling west on the highway approaching 137th Avenue when the Durango rear ended the pickup at about 3:55 p.m. The Durango, which had been traveling erratically and speeding prior to the crash, fled the scene, police said.

A motorist in the Mazda pickup, 61-year-old Roland Minder of Camas, was injured in the crash and transported to a local hospital, police said.

The Durango’s driver, Logan M. Jacobson, 23, of Battle Ground, was apprehended once his vehicle became disabled near Northeast Padden Parkway and state Highway 503, and the man was arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and reckless driving, according to State Patrol. Police say speeding and reckless driving caused the crash.
