NORFOLK -- An intentional collision between two pickup trucks in a field Tuesday night led to charges against one driver including endangering the welfare of a child and possession of fireworks, according to state police.

Troopers say they charged Michael F. Greenwood, 24, Constable, with endangering the welfare of a child, unlawful possession of fireworks, reckless driving, a child safety restraint violation and driving without headlights.

Around midnight, state police say they responded to what was reported as a disturbance on Hough Road. Troopers found two pickup trucks that appeared to have collided in a field.

Troopers said a Mazda pick up truck, operated by Greenwood, had been driving up and down the road with its headlights off. A Hough Road resident then followed Greenwood in another vehicle.

Greenwood intentionally struck the other vehicle with his own in a field near the intersection of Hough Road and Hidy Avenue, troopers said.

A 24-year old female and a 2-year-old male were reportedly with Greenwood in his vehicle at the time of the incident. The child was not restrained in a child safety seat, officers said.

Greenwood was also found to be in possession of fireworks, troopers said.

He was released with appearance tickets for Norfolk Town Court on May 28 at 9 a.m.
