Shades of Ted Kennedy? Somewhere in Martha’s Vineyard, reports of a horrific accident sent police, fire, and medical responders to Katama airfield last Sunday. They found a 1996 Corvette that had smashed through the fence, but the driver was not to be found. There was no indication of blood or injuries either.
The vehicle wasn’t reported stolen, but authorities were able to track down the owner, a woman who happened to own a nearby property, which is where Oulton A. Hues, Jr. was found. According to police, “Oulton admitted to operating and crashing the Corvette. He informed officers that he was racing up and down Atlantic Drive. He then turned inbound on Herring Creek Drive and sped up to a speed around ‘75 mph.’ He then stated he lost control of the Corvette, colliding with the fence before ending up in the airfield. Oulton stated that he then walked to his house and called a tow truck.”
No mention was made on the relation between Mr. Hues and the owner, but the MVTimes.com reports that he was cited for “leaving the scene of property damage, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and speeding greater than reasonable.”
