A man who slammed into an oncoming car on Smithville Highway and then nearly hit a city officer head-on at high speeds now faces charges in two counties.
The suspect, Richard Bogle of Woodbury, was arrested in Smithville on Saturday morning after he crashed his 2010 GMC Terrain there.
According to a Warren County Sheriff’s Department report, Bogle was heading north on Smithville Highway when he tried to pass another vehicle and side-swiped a southbound vehicle. He continued and nearly hit a police vehicle head-on while traveling at a high rate of speed.
He was traveling at such a speed that deputies were not able to get close behind him as he crossed north into DeKalb County. An advisory was put out to be on the lookout for the suspect’s vehicle.
“He has been charged here with reckless endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident,” said Sheriff Jackie Matheny. “That’s in addition to what Smithville charges him with.”
Bogle was treated at the scene of the crash after his vehicle ran off the right side of road and rolled several times.
