David Collier Avery, 49, of Missoula appeared in Missoula Justice Court on Tuesday charged with felony DUI after a hit and run crash on Monday night.

Missoula Police Department Public Information Officer Detective Sergeant Travis Welsh said the hit and run took place at about 5:30 p.m.

"Last night we received a report of a hit and run that occurred at about 5:30 p.m. in the 200 block of South Catlin," Welsh said. "As the investigation went on, the identity of the suspect was confirmed along with the location of his vehicle. The driver was arrested after it was determined that he had three prior convictions for driving under the influence, so this would be a fourth offense, which is a felony."

Welsh said no one was injured in the hit and run crash, even though Avery's vehicle could not be driven after the incident.

Avery was placed in the Missoula County Jail, and he was released after posting $10,000 bond.
