Driver takes off after crashing vehicle

An officer responded to a single-vehicle rollover on Sisson Road near Buehler Road in Irving Township at 7:52 p.m. July 27 and learned the driver had fled the scene. A Ford Ranger had been traveling east on Sisson when it veered off the road, went down an embankment and rolled onto its side. Witnesses said they had driven past the accident and saw a man walk east on Sisson Road. The officer found a wallet belonging to a 31-year-old Freeport woman. She told Freeport Police Department her boyfriend, 39 also of Freeport, had been driving the vehicle at the time, but she did not know where he was. The officer talked to the man at his residence Aug. 1, and he admitted to crashing the vehicle and calling a friend for a ride. He also did not have a license. Information was forwarded to the prosecuting attorney.
