Three months after police responded to a series of collisions in downtown Hamilton, police have laid numerous charges against a 25-year-old man.

Police received multiple 911 calls on Halloween night about an off-road Yamaha dirt bike driving dangerously before it collided with a vehicle near Gage Avenue and Dunsmure Road.

Police say after the collision, the dirt bike rider picked up his bike and fled the scene, leaving his helmet and shoe behind.

Ronald Fallis of Hamilton is charged with dangerous driving, impaired driving, careless driving, breach of probation, driving with a suspended licence, and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
