Crashed pickup found on Route 105 in Camden
Camden — A Camden man was issued a summons after leaving his battered pickup truck abandoned following a roll-over crash in the wee hours of Nov. 23. Ian Lary, of Camden, was summoned for failure to give notice of an accident by the quickest means after leaving his vehicle in the woods off of Washington Street (Route 105) in Camden, said Camden Police Officer Trey Boerner.
Camden Police and Fire departments responded to the report of a damaged pickup truck called in by a Hope man as he traveled to work in Camden around 5:15 a.m.
Camden Fire Chief Chris Farley said the vehicle, a white Chevrolet S-10 pickup, was abandoned when crews arrived on the scene. Farley said the engine of the truck was cool, indicating that the crash had likely occurred "several hours" before the vehicle was discovered.
The vehicle was discovered off the road on upper Washington Street in Camden; it had overturned once, hitting a tree and coming to rest upright, Farley said. He said road conditions were slippery the evening of Thursday, Nov. 22, but the air temperature had risen above 40 degrees at the time the truck was discovered by authorities. Boerner said police are attributing the incident to slick road conditions.
Camden Police located Lary Friday morning. Lary is the registered owner of the vehicle and was driving at the time of the crash, said Boerner. Lary was not injured in the crash, police said.
