Crime blotter information provided by the Sierra Madre Police Department
Saturday September 14 , 2013
At approximately 2am, a vehicle travelling east in the 200 block of West Grandview Avenue ran off the roadway and collided with a power pole. The impact of the collision knocked the power pole off its foundation. The driver was observed driving away from the scene with fluids leaking from the vehicle. A resident obtained a license plate number on the vehicle and it was determined that the vehicle was registered to an address in Ontario. An investigative follow up visit to the Ontario location on Saturday morning failed to locate the vehicle or possible driver. Southern California Edison crews responded to the scene to repair the power pole.
