Vehicle hits convenience store, flees

A Ford Taurus fled the scene after it struck the Camp Street 7-Eleven early Friday morning, and though officers tracked the vehicle to a nearby home, they were not able to determine who was driving at the time, according to a Sandusky police report.

A store employee told police two women were involved in the crash at about 1:30 a.m., before fleeing south on Camp Street, the report said.

Officers followed the vehicle’s tire tracks in the snow to the Prospect Street home of Brittany Maldonado, 28, and found the Taurus in her driveway, the report said. Maldonado and her friend, both appearing intoxicated, answered the door and said a man named Tray wrecked the vehicle, the report said.

When confronted with the fact employees saw two women in the car, Maldonado apologized for lying, but allegedly refused to say who was behind the wheel. Maldonado was charged with obstruction and released to a sober friend.
