An Arlington Heights police patrol officer arrived on the scene of a hit-and-run accident that just occurred on Palatine Road, just west of Windsor in the eastbound express lanes. A big white box truck smashed a silver Nissan Altima and fled the scene just as the police arrived in the area. Another Arlington Heights police squad caught up with the box truck and was committed to an immediate traffic stop on Palatine Road just west of Schoenbeck Road in the express lanes.
The police had the truck driver return to the Windsor scene where he was arrested. The truck driver was transported in custody to Arlington Heights police headquarters.
