At 3:05 p.m. on Feb. 16, deputies investigated a single-vehicle accident at 458 Route 351 in LaSalle Township. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Paul Lutes-Bird, of 104 N. Peru Ave. in Ladd, was westbound on Route 351 when, for an unknown reason, he entered the north shoulder of the road. He then over-corrected and entered the southern ditch, went through a private driveway and struck a tree. A witness stopped to assist and was struck in the right leg as Lutes-Bird fled the scene. Lutes-Bird was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, improper lane usage, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries. No one involved required medical attention.
