Cops: Man nabbed after accident has never had a drivers license

YOUNGSTOWN — Reports said a man who almost hit a police cruiser after being involved in an accident Tuesday on the South Side has never had a driver’s license.

Keith Leon Wade, 29, of Meadowbrook Avenue in Boardman, was issued several traffic citations as well as a citation for failure to comply about 3:25 p.m. Tuesday.

Reports said an officer on patrol at Hillman Street and West Hylda Avenue was almost hit by a car Wade was driving. Wade refused to pull over when the officer put his sirens on and bailed out of his car in the 300 block of West Indianola Avenue and was later caught hiding under a deck at a home in the 400 block of West Princeton Avenue.

Reports said Wade had a hit a car on West Hylda Avenue just before he almost the police cruiser and that he has never had a driver’s license.

In January, Wade was arrested after police found him sleeping in a car in the middle of the street holding a bag of crack cocaine.

That case has been bound over to a Mahoning County grand jury.
