TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) — Police are searching for a driver who ran from the scene of a crash in Trotwood.

According to police, a car lost control on Wolf Creek Pike, near S.R. 49, around 2:40 a.m. Thursday.

A car hit a pole, bringing down live power lines, before crashing into a tree. The driver ran away.

The crash caused a nearby tree to briefly catch on fire, but police say the fire went out on its own.

DP&L was called to repair the lines.

Authorities shut down Wolf Creek Pike between S.R. 49 and Willowburn Avenue for DP&L crews to make those repairs. All lanes reopened just after 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

A DP&L spokesperson said 30 customers in the area would remain without power until around noon Thursday, with crews slated to replace a utility pole in the area.
