Yachats Fire Chief Frankie Petrick and law enforcement are out on a single car traffic crash on Highway 101 about five miles south of Yachats – but they can’t find the driver.
The wreck was reported by a passing motorist early Saturday morning as off the road, overlooking a steep drop off to the beach below. It was not immediately known if the driver was ejected.
Several law enforcement officers searched the area and saw no sign of anyone or any evidence of an injury. A tow truck was ordered. Running the white Toyota’s plate they know who the owner is so they can tell him or her where they can pay the tow bill and pick up their car. There could also be a ticket waiting for them for leaving the scene of an accident.
