FERNDALE, WA (August 25, 2021) – Officials arrested Daniel Sabala, 25, after fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run rollover crash on Malloy Avenue over the weekend.

According to the officers, the BMW driver collided with an unoccupied vehicle before rolling multiple times, causing damage to a home and surrounding property.

The Ferndale Police Department determined that the BMW drove off the road at a high rate of speed.
