Police: Driver Hits Tree, Takes Off

Sleepy Hollow police were unable to locate the driver of a car left on Sleepy Hollow Road, airbags deployed and tree hit.

Again on an outlying Sleepy Hollow road, police found a car involved in a car accident but no driver. 

An employee of the Department of Environmental Protection contacted police headquarters to report finding a car on Sleepy Hollow Road early in the morning on Jan. 28.

After the 5:21 a.m. call, officers confirmed finding a car off the roadway with airbags deployed, tree struck. The driver was gone.

Police called a towing company to remove the car. And they contacted Phelps Memorial Hospital to see if a driver showed up with injuries related to airbag deployment, but the hospital reported having so such person there. 

In December, police received a call of an abandoned pick-up on the side of nearby Bedford Road. This driver had apparently also hit a tree and left on foot.

How come the driver didnt call the police? Did the driver had a drivers licence or was drunk????????

Can't they do a search on the plate to fine out who the car belonged to?

Police just said under investigation, so I'm sure they did look up plate. No way to ever know about the drunk part!
