COLUMBIA, Pa. (WHTM) – A Marietta man has been charged in a hit-and-run crash last week that injured two people.

Giovanni F. Cocco, 28, swerved to avoid stopped traffic June 1 in the 900 block of Chickies Hill Road. His 2004 Dodge Ram struck an oncoming Scion and he fled on foot into a wooded area, West Hempfield Township police said.

Two people in the Scion were transported to Lancaster General Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Cocco later admitted to police that he was driving the Dodge pickup. He told investigators he fled because his license was suspended, police said.
