A Cadillac was seen heavily damaged and leaning against a utility pole on Hayes Avenue near Osborne Street in Sandusky.
The only information available about the alleged crash has come from witnesses.
They said they saw the story develop in front of their eyes around 6 p.m. Sunday.
A tattered man stumbled down Hayes Avenue shortly after the wreck, neighbors said, with blood coming down his face.
"He was just walking, not running," one man said. "Maybe he had some kind of warrants."
"There was blood all coming down his face," another witness said. "He was just walking away from (the scene)."
But with the man walking at a sluggish pace, police quickly caught up and pinned him up against a brick wall.
Another woman, allegedly involved in the wreck, was seen frantically yelling near the scene.
"He just walked away," she yelled at one point.
Sandusky police handled the crash but could not provide insight into the crash late Sunday.
