FRANKLINVILLE – A 45-year-old Franklinville man turned himself into authorities a week after he caused a property damage accident on Park Circle, then drove off and abandoned his vehicle, State Police reported today.

Kevin D. Woodward surrendered to Machias Office troopers after an investigation confirmed he was the owner of the vehicle that damaged a light pole and left ruts in the lawn at Park Circle before ditching his car on nearby Cemetery Hill Road late on Oct. 14.

Woodward was charged with leaving the scene of a property damage accident and moving from a lane unsafely. He was ordered to appear in Franklinville Town Court for further proceedings in two weeks.
