Scary Christmas: C4 Driver Has A Close Call In Martha’s Vineyard

Edg-Accident-corvette-1.jpgThough Christmas has come and gone, it’s not too late to hug and kiss the people you love. No matter who the driver of this Corvette was, there’s no doubt he was grateful this holiday season after the near-death experience he endured in Martha’s Vineyard.

edg-accident-corvette-2.jpgAs it turns out, the driver of the C4 was a certain Mr. Oulton A. Hues, Jr., a 39-year-old whose relation to the real owner, a 74-year-old woman from Norwood, has not been divulged. Since Hues has not been charged with grand theft auto (or anything relating to robbery or theft), it seems likely that he is a friend or family member in relation to the Norwood woman.

Despite all that, the fact remains that Hues was found nowhere near the accident he had caused when authorities were called to the scene on the morning of Sunday, December 21st. The car was found in a wreck involving a smashed-up fence off of Katama Airfield, looking rather worse for wear.

The police report stated the following: “The back window of the car was smashed. Wooden beams from the fence in which the Corvette had crashed through had impaled the car in multiple areas. There was however, no blood in the vehicle, or signs of injury within the car.”

“He then turned inbound on Herring Creek Drive and sped up to a speed around ‘75 miles per hour.’ He then stated he lost control of the Corvette, colliding with the fence before ending up in the airfield. Oulton stated that he then walked to his house and called a tow truck.”

Ultimately, Hues has been charged with leaving the scene of property damage, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and speeding greater than reasonable. A criminal complaint has been filed against him, but no court arrangements have yet been announced.

2014 has ended on a very sour note for Mr. Hues, but hopefully he has learned his lesson. At the very least, he’ll have a great story to tell his cellmates at the county jail.
