Caledonia Police Find Abandoned Car After Driver Fails To Report Crash

A Greenfield woman was arrested by Oak Creek Police after she crashed into a guardrail at We Energies.

Oak Creek police were called about 1:50 a.m. Feb. 14 to the We Energies property on a report a person who backed into a guardrail and then headed southbound on Chicago Road.

A We Energies employee told police the driver seemed intoxicated and thought she was near the freeway, so the employee told her to park her vehicle. But the woman left the scene instead, according to a report by the Oak Creek Police Department.

A 1993 Buick Century, owned by a Greenfield woman, was found unoccupied and stuck in a snow bank in a nearby cul-de-sac in the 4700 block of Seven Mile Road. The car still had the keys in the ignition, according to a report by the Caledonia Police Department.

An Oak Creek police sergeant called the listed owner of the vehicle, a 49-year-old woman, who said she was at her home in Greenfield. Police responded to her home and after initially saying she had been home since 10 p.m., she admitted to police she was driving the vehicle. 

Police arrested her for failing to notify police of an accident and obstructing police.

She wasn't even near the interstate. And she was driving a '93 Buick... She was ripped up!
