Elyria – When Elyria Police started receiving calls of a car striking utility poles along Furnace Street they began looking for the vehicle. Witnesses told Officers that the car had struck a pole at the Five Points Marathon gas station then fled the scene north on West River Road.

The car had received heavy damage to the body and to the driver’s side rear tire.

While searching the area, one Officer spotted tire and gouge marks on West River Road that lead into Fox Hill Lane. The Officer followed the marks right to the car – that had been parked in the driveway of 51 Fox Hill.

Neighbors said that although they didn’t see the man pull in, they sure heard him pulling in. They said the noise was so loud that they thought there was a crash in front of their house. They went outside and spotted the car in the driveway and noticed the damage and that they airbag had been deployed. Shortly after that they said they heard yelling coming from the back townhouse – an argument they said, about the car. They said it was then that the Police arrived and found the car.

Police went to the townhouse and found the man with his girlfriend. After a brief discussion and a quick attempt from the man claiming the car had been stolen, Officers took him into custody.

Neighbors pointed out that the man had just recently been released from jail after serving time for a previous OVI. They pointed out how even with the car as banged up as it was, even missing a rear tire, the man took the extra time to back the car into the driveway as is his normal routine.
