Kokomo Attorney Under Investigation After Car Accident

Last updated on Thursday, May 14, 2009

(KOKOMO) - A Kokomo attorney is under investigation for leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.

Howard County Sheriff Marty Talbert says a local farmer and businessman was rear-ended while traveling in his farm equipment Tuesday night.

42-year-old Tom Trine injured his knee in the crash.

The victim and his son made contact with the other driver in the incident, but told police the woman got back in her car and fled the scene.

The victim's brother followed the suspect vehicle and watched it pull into a residential garage at the home of attorney Stephanie Doran.

When sheriff's deputies arrived at the home, Doran wouldn't let them inspect anything on her property.

Officials later obtained a search warrant and confiscated the car in question.

Sheriff Talbert says officials are certain they have the vehicle involved in the crash and will work to identify the driver.
