Hit-and-run in Wolcottville

The LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a hit-and-run on Main Street in Wolcottville.

    According to the police report, sometime on Aug. 9 or 10, a vehicle was northbound on SR 9 near CR 800S when it left the travel portion of the roadway for an unknown reason. The vehicle sideswiped a steel overhead traffic control post and went into a yard area. The vehicle then hit a large wooden flowerpot, shoving it into the front door of a business. The vehicle continued northbound to where it appeared to have stopped and fixed the front tire damaged in the initial crash or was towed from the area.

    Officers conducted a sweep of the area looking for the suspect vehicle, but were unsuccessful in locating it.
