The driver involved in a hit and run crash in Albany Tuesday night took off in his truck, and was killed when he wrecked it near the Marine Base.

Police identified the man who caused both crashes was killed in the 1400 block of Mock Road as 65 year old Harry Lamar Martin, of Albany.

Officials said around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night Martin was driving a pickup truck in the 300 block of South Mock Road in the city, when he crashed into a car injuring one person.

He sped away down Mock Road, where he sideswiped another car, injuring two more people.

He then lost control of the pickup and crashed into the fence surrounding MCLB, knocking out about 100 feet of the fencing.

Officials had to use hydraulic equipment to cut the truck to remove Martin's body.

The other injuries are not life threatening.
