The vehicle went east on Monroe Street and then went into Gate 2 of the fairgrounds, driving south in the fairground at ďa high rate of speed,Ē according to the report.
The driver drove off a dirt road and into Rock Run Creek, crashing into the creek. The driver got out of the vehicle and ran from the scene.
