Three people involved in a crash on Grant County, Sunday, August 28, lied about exiting the vehicle while it was moving after the driver exhibited a gun, said Grant County deputies.
In the initial investigation, the three involved persons claimed that they had been getting a ride from a bar because their driver had lost the keys to their car. The unknown driver took one passenger to another location before driving to Avoca. At some point during the trip, the driver revealed his gun to the remaining passengers, urging them to exit the vehicle, which was still moving.
The investigation revealed, however, that one of the apparent passengers, 22-year-old Ryan Salis, was driving the 2007 Chevy Cobalt when the vehicle veered off County Road C, hitting two trees before stopping. Salis, 21-year-old Elizabeth Arneson, and 20-year-old Jerry Wilder Jr., continued traveling north on foot until they reached a building. They woke the resident who drove them to a hospital.
