BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – Melbourne Police arrested two people after they say a U-Haul truck caused several accidents Friday.

Authorities say an officer recognized the vehicle as stolen from Seabring when the truck pulled up to the scene of an unrelated accident.

Melbourne Police made contact with the occupants of the U-Haul truck, Jade Hornsby and Daniel Brogden, before Brogden fled on foot and Hornsby drove away.

The initial pursuit of Hornsby in the truck was discontinued for safety concerns but began again when the U-Haul struck other vehicles. While attempting a U-turn, the truck got stuck in a grassy median at Silver Palm and Waverly Place, where Hornsby was taken into custody by Melbourne Police. Hornsby faces several charges, including possession of methamphetamine.

Police arrested Brogden at Sarno and Wickham Road and charged him for resisting an officer without violence and grand theft of a motor vehicle.
