4500 block of Dogwood Street - Officers still are sorting out the stories of men who argued over a vehicle trade and caused an accident Tuesday, according to a police report. Officers who were called to the house about 10 p.m. found two men there who did not live there. One of them said he traded his Dodge truck to the resident of the house for a BMW. But the key to the Beemer broke off in the ignition and the key he had made did not work, he said. So he wanted to trade back, but the other man didn't want to do that. So the first man took along a friend to help him get his truck back. The resident was sitting in the truck when they arrived and the friend confronted him. He drove away. So the friend jumped into the Beemer and chased after the Dodge. He wound up striking the truck with the car. The man driving the Dodge then drove to the police department to make his own report. An investigation is continuing.
