Seven Liberal residents were arrested last week after a hit-and-run accident in Haskell County.

“On July 8, at approximately 4:43 p.m., Haskell County Communications began receiving 911 calls regarding a two-vehicle accident two miles south of Sublette on U.S. Highway 83,” according to a press release from the Haskell County Sheriff’s office. “Shortly after receiving the calls of the accident, communications began receiving calls that a gold van was leaving the scene of the accident.”

The report added upon arrival, sheriff’s office personnel discovered that Aja Ardery, Sublette, was southbound on Hwy. 83 in a 2013 Chevy passenger car and was turning into a private drive.

“The driver of a 2003 Pontiac van rear ended Ardrey’s vehicle,” the release noted. “The 2003 Pontiac only had one occupant remaining on scene, and the occupant stated he was not the driver.”

Later, a Haskell County deputy was able to locate the gold minivan, which transported persons away from the accident scene.

“It was later determined during investigation that the driver of the 2003 Pontiac was one of the occupants in the gold minivan,” the sheriff’s office said. “The driver of the 2003 Pontiac – when it struck the Chevy – was identified as Luciano Pablo, 31.”

Pablo, according to the report, was later arrested for no driver’s license, interference with law enforcement and failure to report an accident.

The driver of the gold minivan, when it was located, was 35-year-old Jose Pablo Perez, who was also arrested for no driver’s license and interference with law enforcement.

The Haskell County Sheriff’s office added five other occupants were in the van that left the scene, and all five occupants were arrested for interference with law enforcement.

“Those occupants were identified as 29-year-old Transito Juarez, 31-year-old Santo Juarez-Gomez, 20-year-old Sebastian Barios Ambrocio, 25-year-old Manual Ambrocio and 22-year-old Manual Ambrocio,” the release said.

All of those arrested had Liberal addresses, and all involved parties from the accident denied medical treatment on scene.
