Stolen Car Found In Ditch | Crime
A Racine woman's stolen car has been found smoldering in a ditch.
The woman said her 1998 Pontiac Grand Am was taken Sunday night or Monday morning, and sometime later the vehicle was found in a ditch on the Mower-Olmsted County line.
A witness went to investigate when he heard the crash, and found the smoke coming from the car's engine.
The Stewartville Fire Department was called to put out the fire.
There was no one with the car that crashed, but while the witness was at the scene another car drove slowly past the crash. Authorities say the three young men in that car might be suspects in the theft.
The investigation continues.
