Marana hit-and-run suspect remains hospitalized after pursuit

  • Updated

MESA, Ariz. — A man wanted in a southern Arizona hit-and-run accident remains hospitalized in the Phoenix area after being injured in the crash of a pickup truck following a police pursuit.

Mesa police Detective Steve Berry says information isn't available yet on what charges 31-year-old Joshua Monigold will face in connection with the incidents Thursday.

Police say Monigold suffered unspecified injuries when the pickup he was driving crashed on Interstate 10 on the southern outskirts of the Phoenix area.

According to police, the crash concluded a pursuit during which Monigold attempted unsuccessfully to steal a motorcycle from another man. That man fought Monigold, who then drove off again in the pickup.

Marana police say Monigold was wanted on suspicion of leaving the scene of a collision with injuries.
