A man turned himself in at the Gordon County Jail following a hit-and-run in Rome that occurred on Saturday.

According to arrest records, 25-year old Barry Tyler Pruitt, of a Turner Road address in Rome, fled on foot after his vehicle left Moran Lake Road and struck a residence.

Pruitt was identified by paperwork left in the vehicle and it was discovered that he may have fled because there were outstanding warrants in Gordon County for his arrest.

Pruitt has been charged by Floyd County Police with hit and run, failure to maintain a lane and driving too fast for conditions.
