NATCHITOCHES PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A hit and run crash Monday lead to the arrests of a teen accused of stealing a combine near Powhatan, LA.

The crash happened around 5:20 p.m. on LA Hwy. 504 near Sandra Street in the Oak Grove community near Natchitoches.

A man told deputies he was driving on Johnson Chute Road near Posey Road in his 2010 Nissan Maxima when a large green John Deere combine hit his car and didn't stop.

The man then reportedly followed the combine to Highway 1 traveling south, then onto LA Hwy. 3191, then south on LA Hwy. 504 turning right on the Eight Mile Loop, striking a road sign and breaking the rear axle.

The driver of the combine then ran towards Sandra Street. Natchitoches Parish sheriff's deputies arrived on scene and arrested 17-year-old Carl Mobley of Powhatan for the hit and run and stealing the combine.

Deputies say while interviewing Mobley, he stated he took the 2011 John Deere 977C STS farm combine without permission from Messenger Farm’s on L! Hwy. 485 near I-49 and went towards Natchitoches with the intent of joy riding.

Deputies got reports that the combine ran drivers off of the roadway on LA Hwy. 3191.

The owner was then contacted and notified of the theft.

Louisiana State Police also responded to investigate the crash. Police say the Nissan Maxima received moderate damage to the driver’s side while the John Deere combine received moderate damage to the rear.

Mobley, of the 200 block of North Railroad Street, Powhatan, was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center and charged with 1-count of unauthorized use of a moveable valued over $500. Louisiana State Police also charged him with careless operation, and hit & run.

Deputies say due to the rear axle being broken on the combine, it was left at the scene Monday night until it could be removed Tuesday morning. A NPSO Sheriff’s Unit stayed at the scene all night to help and warn traffic of the potential traffic hazard.

The investigation is continuing by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office and Louisiana State Police.
