    CASTLETON — A Castleton police officer was involved in a hit-and-run crash Saturday evening after a Massachusetts man struck his cruiser on Route 4.

    Castleton officer Justin Szarejko said he was on the westbound lane on Route 4 investigating a vehicle stuck in the median when Christopher Lundgren of Andover, Mass., lost control of his vehicle and hit Szarejko’s 2013 Ford Taurus Interceptor.

    Szarejko said Lundgren initially pulled over, but when he was approached by Szarejko, he fled off of Route 4 via exit 5. He said Lundgren failed to stop at the intersection of exit 5 and East Hubbardton Road and crashed into the ledges.

    Lundgren was arrested for leaving the scene of a crash and careless and negligent operation of a motor vehicle along with multiple traffic tickets. He will answer to the charges in Rutland criminal court at a later date.

    No one was injured as a result of the crash.
