ATLANTA — Police learned that a car crashed into a brick wall and overturned in Buckhead; however, the driver is nowhere to be found.
Atlanta police said that they have been looking for a driver who crashed and then left what they believed was a stolen vehicle in Buckhead.
At around 2 o’clock in the morning, the police were informed of a crash that happened on Peachtree Road near West Wesley Road. The only fact known was that the car hit a wall and a power pole. The vehicle overturned, but police said the driver escaped through the sunroof.
Before Georgia Power crews came to secure power line in the area, all lanes of Peachtree Street were briefly shut down.
Atlanta firefighters and police officers were all around in the scene as they investigated the wreck, while a Mercedes-Benz was towed away.
Meanwhile small planes were grounded at South Georgia regional airport after a car crashed through a fence, plowed through two hangars and hit the wings of a parked aircraft.
The Valdosta Daily Times Thursday reported that on December 27, a 24-year-old man identified as Brandon Cowart who ran into a ditch near Madison Highway around 11:45 in the afternoon of Monday. Authorities said that Cowart then careened through the Valdosta Regional Airport before coming to a rest in an office building.
Cowart told police that he fell asleep at the wheel and did not remember anything after the initial impact. Authorities said that pieces of the 2010 Honda Accord Cowart was driving were strewn along the path he took from the road through the airport.
Cowart was not seriously hurt. The Police charged him with failure to maintain lane.
