Two men were arrested following a manhunt in the Hudson Valley that lasted around 16-hours. The men are accused of stealing a dog, and crashing a stolen tow-truck into two cars.

On Wednesday around 1:30 a.m., State Police responded to a 911 call for a three-car collision at the intersection of Routes 22 and 295 in the Town of Canaan.

A 2011 Ford F550 tow-truck, later determined to be driven by 31-year-old Jonathan Kimball, was traveling north on Route 22 when the tow-truck failed to stop for a red traffic light and hit a 2008 Chevrolet Blazer traveling east on State Route 295, police say.

After, in an alleged attempt to flee, Kimball placed the tow-truck in reverse and hit a parked car.

Kimball and his passenger, 46-year-old Steven P. Nance, then fled, leaving a Pit bull inside the vehicle.

The tow-truck was later determined to be stolen from Pennsylvania, the dog stolen from Alabama, police say.

Nance was found near the accident and arrested for criminal possession of stolen property, a felony.

While investigating, troopers were told that another vehicle, which was stolen near the scene of the accident, was found in Massachusetts. Police allege Kimball stole the car.
