Salem Man Charged with Hit and Run

50-year old Salem resident Clayton Randall Littleton was arrested early Wednesday and charged with hit and run, reckless driving and malicious injury to property.

The charges stem from a Tuesday afternoon accident on Stamp Creek Road that was investigated by both the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office and the Highway Patrol.

A second driver, investigators said, was driving a rental car and attempting to get by a tractor that was mowing grass, when it was approached from the rear by a white car which swerved into the rental, causing between an estimated $8-$10,000 in damages, before it fled the scene.
