Van Buren man wanted for questioning about SUV crash

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in bringing in a Van Buren man for questioning.

The sheriff’s office said 23-year-old Andre “L.D.” White is wanted for questioning about a car crash and a stolen vehicle.

Early Thursday morning, a 2007 Cadillac SUV owned by Melinda Hackenburg was involved in a single-vehicle crash on Hancock County 140, north of Portage Township 107. The people in the SUV fled the scene.

A passenger in the Cadillac was later found. William Carver, 33, suffered severe injuries, the sheriff’s office said. Investigators think alcohol was a factor in the crash.

The sheriff’s office is also investigating a report that a vehicle was stolen in the same area as the crash. Deputies believe the cases are related.

People with information about where Andre White is, are being asked to call the sheriff’s office at 419-422-2424.
