A woman ditched her car after crashing into a pole early Saturday morning in Willowick, according to police.

Police were called around 2:50 a.m. after someone noticed an unoccupied vehicle had crashed into a utility pole, knocking the pole down across Lakeshore Boulevard.

Officers on scene believed the car was traveling eastbound on Lakeshore Boulevard when the crash happened. 

About three hours later, police said the driver, a 32-year-old woman from Parma, was found walking in Eastlake. She was not injured and was taken into custody for OVI, authorities said.
