Columbiana County teen blames accident on "Bigfoot" like creature

Posted: Updated:

FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A driver in Columbiana County claims he wrecked his vehicle after telling police he was trying to avoid a creature that looked like Bigfoot.

Last week, the Ohio State Highway Patrol spoke with the teenaged driver whose car went off Bunker Hill Road in Fairfield Township.

The 17-year-old from Columbiana told the trooper he drove off the road to avoid a creature that resembled Bigfoot.

The driver wasn't hurt, and the officer said he didn't appear to be under the influence.

However, the highway patrol says the teen has made similar claims to the sheriff's department.
