Troopers with the state Highway Patrol's Norwalk post found opened beer cans in abandoned vehicles involved in separate crashes.

Jensen Towing towed a red 1997 Ford F-150 pickup truck from the scene of a Peru Center Road crash with disabled damage. Troopers estimate the accident happened about 11 p.m. May 6.

The unknown driver was southbound on Peru Center Road when he or she failed to negotiate a curve, troopers said. The truck went off the right side of the road and hit a sign, ditch and utility pole before coming to final rest.

Troopers found a cold, open beer can in the floorboard. The patrol had left a note at the vehicle owner's residence for the person to contact the Norwalk post.

In a separate crash, an unknown driver crashed a silver 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse about 1:40 a.m. Saturday.

The driver was southeast on Whittlesey Road before the accident. Troopers said the driver went off the right side and hit a sign, then overcorrected, re-entered the road, went off the left side and hit a utility pole.

Troopers found two open beer cans on the floorboard of the front passenger side.

Several attempts to contact the male subject who had called the towing company, White Automotive Services, were unsuccessful. White towed the car from the scene with functional damage.

Each of the crashes remain under investigation.
