Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched about 9:10 p.m. to 10368 County Road 286 in the area of Turkeyfoot Island and Tecumseh Island in reference to a hit-skip crash. 

A resident of that address reported he was sitting on his patio when he heard the sounds of an automobile crash. He then observed a dark-colored BMW two-door car striking several mailboxes. The resident said he spoke with the driver briefly, and the vehicle drove off toward Tecumseh Island.

The driver of the vehicle reportedly came back a few minutes later and told the resident he had been drinking. The suspect then reportedly drove by a second time at a high rate of speed. 

Deputies noted that a total of seven mailboxes had been struck by the vehicle along C.R. 286. 

Deputies are working to locate the driver and issue citations.
