Boone County Sheriff’s Office searching for suspect involved in Thursday crash investigation



The Boone County Sheriff’s Office is looking to arrest Harold David Fogle, age 60 of Hannibal, Missouri, as the suspect who crashed into innocent motorists while fleeing from a deputy on Thursday night.

A started around 11 p.m. Thursday night and ended after a vehicle, believed to be driven by Fogle, ran a red light on Range Line, colliding with two other cars.

The driver left and went north on foot. Deputies on scene used dogs to attempt to track the driver.

Probable cause for the arrest of a Fogle was developed throughout the investigation following the crash. Fogle’s whereabouts is unknown at this time and a warrant request has been submitted to the Boone County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office seeking the following charges be filed against Fogle; Two Counts of 2nd Degree Assault, Leaving the Scene of Accident (involving physical injury), Resisting Arrest, Driving While Revoked/Suspended, Operated a Motor Vehicle in a Careless and Imprudent Manner, Stealing.

Following the crash, it was confirmed the Ford Explorer was not entered as a stolen vehicle in the NCIC database. It is accurate that prior to attempting to stop the Ford both a stolen vehicle alert and a stolen registration alert on the Missouri registration displayed on the Ford were received from an automated license plate reader.

The stolen vehicle alert from the NCIC hot list was associated with a “Felony Vehicle” entry by the O’Fallon Police Department rather than a vehicle that was actually stolen.

The notes of that entry indicated the Ford was wanted for a felony fleeing incident and was displaying the same stolen plates at the time it fled. The license plates displayed on the Ford were confirmed to have been stolen out of Kansas City, Missouri.

Two women were transported to University Hospital with serious injuries, according to the Columbia Fire Department.

One woman taken to the hospital was a passenger in the stolen car. The Boone County Sheriff's Office later identified her as Annie Ledbetter, 40, of Columbia. The sheriff's office said deputies found what they think was methamphetamine on Ledbetter.

The innocent motorist injured during the crash has been released from the hospital.

Ledbetter is still listed in stable condition at a local hospital.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Fogle is asked to contact the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

A current photo of Fogle is not available, but he is a 60 year old white male with gray hair and a receding hair line. Fogle is approximately 5’04” in height with a medium build.
