Driver leaves scene of accident


An officer from the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched on Jan. 6 to a residence on CR 500S regarding a property damage accident.

    According to the police report, a black 1999 Toyota 4-Runner had struck a NIPSCO pole at the intersection of CR 650S and CR 1100E. The owner of the vehicle called the sheriff’s department for a report when she discovered extensive driver’s side damage on the vehicle. She claimed not to have noticed the damage at the time of the accident. No one involved contacted NIPSCO regarding the damaged pole.

    This case will be forwarded to the LaGrange County Prosecutor’s Office for review and possible charges.
