FORTY FORT — A man allegedly struck three vehicles with his vehicle, yet continued driving for more than two miles on only three tires before police stopped him in a neighboring municipality on Wednesday.

The man, who is in his mid 50s, was driving south on Wyoming Avenue in the area of Dennison and Rose streets shortly after 2:10 p.m. when his vehicle struck the vehicle of a man driving north, Forty Fort Police Chief Daniel Hunsinger said.

The SUV then crossed into the northbound lanes and struck two parked vehicles — one of them a mail truck — before returning to a southbound lane, the chief said.

The driver then continued on Wyoming Avenue through Forty Fort and partway through Kingston — about 2.5 miles — before Kingston police stopped him near Bank of America at James Street, Hunsinger said.

Hunsinger declined to release the man’s name on Wednesday night. The man showed no signs of alcohol intoxication but was taking prescription medication, Hunsinger said. Police are investigating to determine if the incident was a result of a medical issue.
