Fisher was driving 65 mph in a 35-mph zone on Liberty Street, the report said.

Fisher's vehicle ran a red light at the intersection of Liberty Street and 14th Street and collided with an SUV in the intersection, the report said. Fisher's vehicle then broke a utility pole on Liberty Street and collided with concrete blocks.

Fisher got out of the car and ran from the scene, but police arrested him, the report said. Fisher, who was injured, refused medical treatment.

The utility pole fell through the window of the SUV, which Jay Louis Carlton Jr, of Winston-Salem was driving, the report said. The pole struck Carlton in his head and face, and his passenger, Stephanie Renee Boston of Winston-Salem, also was injured.

Carlton and Boston were taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment of their injuries, the report said.
