Sandusky police charged David Ratti, 20, first block W. Main St., with leaving the scene of an accident and failure to control a motor vehicle.

Perkins police also charged the man with operating a vehicle under the influence, according to a Sandusky police report. A resident allegedly saw Ratti’s car fishtailing in the 1000 block of Camp St., when it lost control and smashed into a parked Cadillac around 2 a.m.

The resident then saw its driver frantically shift gears and flee the area. Perkins police caught up with Ratti’s vehicle at Perkins Avenue and Old Railroad Road, the report said.

Ratti offered no explanations as to why he fled, the report said. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage.

The Cadillac was pushed diagonally out into the street, and a rear axle appeared to be bent.

Broken pieces of the car’s body littered the road, the report said.

Ratti remained in Perkins police custody, and his court date was scheduled for later Friday morning.
