Leelanau Co. Deputies Investigate Crash, Follow Trail of Parts to Suspect’s Home

Parts and marks left from a crash led Leelanau County deputies to a driver who drove off after a crash.

Leelanau County deputies say they got a call Sunday night about a crash on East Cherry Bend Road near South Elk Run.

That caller told them they heard a crash.

But when deputies got there the driver was gone.

They eventually caught up with this car.

That’s because it left a trail of parts and gouge marks from the scene all the way to their home.

The driver was arrested for suspicion of driving drunk for a second time, leaving the scene of property damage and not having insurance.
