LEBANON, Ind. – Police searched for a man who crashed his car near a golf course in Lebanon Friday.

According to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office, a tan Lincoln Continental overturned at 3775 North U.S. 52. Deputies were dispatched to the area just after 1 p.m. Police said it appeared the car was heading southbound when it veered into northbound traffic and flipped in a ditch.

Witnesses said a white male with “long, dark hair” and a gray hooded sweatshirt got out of the car and ran off. The driver, who was by himself, tried to get help from someone passing by. Someone eventually stopped and the man asked for a ride. The man revealed he didn’t have a license, and the person who stopped declined to give him a ride.

The man then stole a golf cart from the nearby Trophy Club and ditched it north of the crash scene. Police searched for him using K-9s and a National Guard Helicopter but were unable to locate him.
