A Wittmann man has been sent to prison for a hit-and-run traffic crash that sent an 18-year-old bicyclist to the hospital with critical injuries.
Jeffrey Scott Darden, 33, who received a 21-month term behind bars, was taken into custody after sheriff’s deputies found a damaged pickup truck that figured in the crash Dec. 26, 2006.
He was sentenced Dec. 20, nearly a year later, following a six-day trial in Superior Court in which jurors found him guilty of leaving the scene of a serious-injury accident.
…The crash occurred while Smith was cycling with a 16-year-old friend near Wittmann, a community northwest of Surprise, investigators said.
