Police continue to look for the person who wrecked a stolen SUV along a rural Jessamine County road early Thursday morning.
Deputies say a passing motorist spotted an SUV driving erratically along Bethany Road around 12:30 a.m. A few minutes later, that same person saw the SUV crash into a utility pole near the intersection of Riney B Way. The impact snapped the pole in half, dropping telephone lines across the roadway.
The driver of the SUV made a quick escape. When deputies arrived, the vehicle's doors and windows were locked, with the keys inside.
Authorities called the owner of the SUV, a Jessamine County deputy coroner. He said he thought the vehicle was still in his driveway.
Bethany Road remains shut down, as crews work to repair the utility pole.
