News: DMPD searching for driver who damaged light poles, fled scene on foot

DES MOINES, IA - Police in Des Moines are searching for a driver who collided with several light poles and street signs on Friday and then fled the scene on foot.

WHO 13 reports that the incident occurred in the Highland Park area, although the time of the incident is unspecified. A surveillance camera caught a northbound Chevy Malibu swerving into the southbound lanes before jumping a curb and striking a pair of light poles and a street sign. One of the poles crashed into a storefront window, damaging it.

A witness at the scene says that the Malibu collided with a third light pole before finally coming to a stop, at which point its driver got out of the vehicle and fled the scene on foot.

That individual is still at large, and police are asking anyone with knowledge of the incident to contact them immediately.
