White County Sheriff’s Department Receives Two Reports Of Individuals Leaving The Scene Of An Accident

At around 10:15 on December 27th, officer George Spencer with the White County Sheriff’s Department responded to 43 County Road 700 North in reference to a report of a vehicle having left the roadway and damaging a vinyl fence to the east side of the residence.  Spencer met with Rance Short who stated that between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. an unknown vehicle struck his fence causing a large amount of damage. Short told the officer that he found and removed several items that he believed must have been thrown from the vehicle at the time that it struck the fence. Officer Spencer observed the items which included a plumbing fixture, Sawzall blades, a tape measure and what appeared to be the center cap from a Moto Metal wheel.  Short told the officer he didn’t know who may have damaged the fence. Spencer advised Short that an incident report will be completed and placed on file at the White County Sheriff’s Department.

A couple of hours later, Officer George Spencer met with John McKay at the White County Sheriff’s Department in reference to a report of his vehicle being struck by another vehicle while traveling on County Road 800 E. McKay told Spencer he was traveling South in his black 1996 GMC Sierra when he observed a Ford dually traveling north towards him. McKay stated that he moved as close to the west side of the roadway as he could but that the Ford didn’t move over enough. McKay said the driver struck his driver’s side mirror then continued north before turning east onto Highway 14. McKay stated that he attempted to follow the vehicle to obtain the registration plate number but was unsuccessful. McKay filed a report with the White County Sheriff’s Department about the matter.
