A Naples man is accused of crashing into a parked car, multiple mailboxes and a structure before fleeing the scene.

It happened outside of an apartment complex located at 46th Terrace SW in Naples, Friday.

A witness told Collier County Sheriff's Office deputies that a green Ford Ranger smashed against a yellow Toyota truck, causing the truck to roll down a hill.

The green truck pulled off but came back moments later crashing into several mailboxes and a nearby apartment, according to a CCSO report.

The driver of the green truck, identified as 46-year-old Joseph Eliacin, exited his car and went into his residence located at the apartment.

When deputies arrived they found Joseph intoxicated and asleep on his bed.

He was arrested and charged with Hit-and-Run.
