(COLUMBUS) - A woman who is accused of fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run crash was apprehended after she was found hiding in a stranger's clothes dryer at a Columbus residence.

According to a news release from the Columbus Police Department, a blue Chevrolet truck was involved in the two-vehicle crash in the area of 10th Street and Central Avenue about 4:30 p.m. on Friday. The truck drove off, and a female passenger bailed out of the truck and fled on foot.

Police located and stopped the blue truck, which sustained heavy front-end damage, near 18th Street and Keller Avenue. The driver, 27-year-old Kevin J. Alcorn of Seymour, was arrested without incident.

A police officer trying to locate the person who ran away from the crash scene was flagged down by woman in the 1100 block of Central Avenue. She told the officer that a woman, later identified as 25-year-old Crystal K. Floyd of Seymour, ran through her house and then hid in the bushes next to her front porch.

Another resident in the 1100 block of Iowa Street, told police she tried to help Floyd, but became uncomfortable and asked Floyd to leave her home. When the homeowner checked to make sure Floyd had left her home she found her hiding inside a clothes dryer and that is where police found her.

Floyd complained of chest and back pain from the vehicle crash, and police say she also told officers she recently had used meth.

Floyd was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital for treatment and then to the Bartholomew County Jail.

Alcorn was charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in injury. Floyd was arrested on warrants from Bartholomew and Jennings Counties. Other charges are pending.
