JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A planter met its demise early Wednesday afternoon when a driver plowed his car into it.

According to the Arkansas State University Police Department, a man hit a very large plant pot sitting in front of the Nursing Center and Post Office on South Caraway Road around 12:45.

Officers couldn't release much information on the incident, but did say the driver was at a nearby hospital answering questions.

A student on the scene at the scene said the driver was alert after the crash and she tried to help him.

"I'm not a hero. I just saw the guy and wanted to help him, and when he took off, I knew he needed, for some reason, to be caught..." said ASU Senior Catherine Lee.

Region 8 News will keep in contact with ASUPD for more information on the driver. Keep checking back from more information on kait8.com or region8togo.com.
