FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – A Columbiana teen says he crashed his car last week trying to avoid Bigfoot.
Robert James Sevenich, 17, told a trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol that he spotted Bigfoot at the side of the road about 2:55 a.m. on Jan. 28, which caused him to hit the accelerator and crash his car into a ditch.
According to Sgt. Ron Cox, Sevenich was at a stop sign at the intersection of Bunker Hill Road and Crestview Road in Fairfield Township when he spotted the “creature” standing near the stop sign.
“He looked to his right and saw what he thought was the Bigfoot creature standing there,” said Cox. “He accelerated quickly and hit the ditch on the left side of the road.”
The trooper that responded to the crash searched the area for footprints but didn’t find anything.
Sevenich was not injured. He was charged with failure to control his vehicle.
