Sheriff’s Report, April 27-29, 2016
Last week, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office was looking for the driver of a vehicle that was found abandoned on Echo Dam Road near the Interstate 80 on-ramp in eastern Summit County.
At around 8:16 a.m. Thursday, April 21, a driver reported seeing a red 1999 Ford Mustang with Utah plates crashed on the northeast end of Echo Dam Road. A report states the car was significantly damaged and the doors were found open. Sgt. Ron Bridge said the driver and passenger side airbags had deployed. Blood was found on the driver’s side airbag.
"It appeared whoever drove was injured," Bridge said. "We did a search of area hospitals and found that no one had come in with any kind of injuries relating to the accident."
