A Dresden man is facing charges after reportedly hitting three parked vehicles — two of which are equipped to accommodate wheelchairs — on Front Street in Richmond and then fleeing.

Jon Madore, 58, was arrested on charges of failure to report an accident by quickest means and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

Richmond Police Chief Scott MacMaster said Madore was arrested after hitting three parked vehicles with his 1999 sport utility vehicle shortly before 1 a.m. on June 14. The impact badly damaged the three vehicles, all of which were parked on the street around 285 Front St., MacMaster said. A 2009 Subaru Impreza was totaled. A 2011 Toyota Sienna and a 2013 Toyota Sienna, owned by a father of son, also were damaged. The vans are each outfitted to accommodate wheelchairs that both the father and son must use, MacMaster said.

Police were investigating the crash when they received a report of an unattended vehicle broken down in the travel lane of Front Street near the Richmond/Dresden bridge, about a mile from the crash scene.

“The tire fell off,” MacMaster said. “That’s why it was abandoned.”

Police subsequently found Madore and arrested him.

MacMaster said it appears the vehicles were hit several times, but he is unsure why.

“Intoxicants may have been a factor,” he said.
