Hailey police reportedly located a vehicle they believe was involved in a crash last week at a Woodside Boulevard residence in southeast Hailey.

The vehicle, a maroon and silver 1996 Chevrolet pickup, was found abandoned shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday near Hailey Elementary School. Subsequent investigation, primarily from vehicle parts left behind at the Woodside residence, tied the vehicle to the crash, police reported. Investigation also showed that the vehicle was reported stolen from Camas County.

Three vehicles parked in the driveway at 3040 Woodside were damaged when the Chevrolet pickup allegedly drove through the yard and crashed into them around 2:15 a.m. last Friday. Damage to those vehicles is estimated at $10,000.

The driver of the Chevrolet allegedly left the scene of the accident.

Police Chief Jeff Gunter said Tuesday that residents of the home found the suspect vehicle and then called police.

Investigation is continuing to try to identify who was driving the Chevrolet the night of the crash.
