Orem police say a trail of oil led them to a hit-and-run driver.
Police learned of the accident at 3:41 a.m. Thursday when a man saw a "for rent" sign shoved into the driver's side window of his Chevrolet Cobalt, according to Orem Sgt. Craig Martinez. Martinez said it looked like someone shoved the sign into the car to make the damage look like vandalism. The car was parked on the street at 525 N. 200 East.
But police soon discovered additional damage to the car that looked like a hit and run, and Martinez explained that the sign was apparently an attempt to obscure what really happened. Then the officers looked at the ground.
