Prior to arriving on scene officers received further information that a passerby had picked up an occupant of the vehicle and had just dropped him off at a residence in Crediton.
Upon arriving at the crash scene officers located a heavily damaged car that had appeared to have rolled several times. Upon checking over the crash scene and determining nobody remained on scene officers attended the residence in Crediton to check on the occupant that had been dropped off.
Initially officers were met with some deception however it didn't take long before officers were able to locate and speak with the driver of the wrecked vehicle.
