Hit/skip crash nets OVI charge

Deputies received a report of a car that had struck a guardrail on U.S. 68 just north of County Road 57 about 10 p.m. The vehicle then reportedly proceeded northbound with its headlights off to Eagles Campground, 5118 N.

A black car with frontal damage was located at the campground, and the driver, Mr. Joseph, was arrested after he admitted to striking the guardrail on U.S. 68. He was transported to the Logan County Jail.
