Abby Wambach Flipped Her SUV In Secret '14 Wreck ... Fled Scene

EXCLUSIVE

U.S. soccer legend Abby Wambach flipped her SUV in a secret late night car wreck back in 2014 -- and miraculously emerged healthy enough to walk more than a mile home following the crash.

TMZ Sports has confirmed ... Wambach was the driver of a Range Rover that crashed and flipped in Multnomah County, Oregon just after midnight on June 28, 2014. The car landed on a residential property -- causing damage to the front lawn. 

Moments after the crash, a passerby who came upon the flipped car called 911 and said the driver had already left the scene.  

A rep for the Portland PD tells us they ran the plate -- it matched with Abby -- so they went to her home (1 mile away) and located her there a short time later.  

Cops say Abby told them she had walked home because she didn't have her cell phone and wanted to call a tow truck. Unclear why she didn't flag down a motorist or knock on the door of the home where she flipped.  

Despite the severity of the crash and the curious fact she left the scene -- cops say they had no reason to believe Abby was impaired and did not administer a DUI test of any kind.  

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Dept. did file a 1 page report -- but Abby was never charged for hit and run or any other crime. 

Cops tell us this was NOT a case of celebrity justice -- with the responding officer insisting he didn't know who Abby was, despite her being a star on the U.S. National team. "We handled it as we would any other similar crash." 

In fact, cops say they helped put Abby in touch with the owner of the property so she could take care of the damages. 

We reached out to Abby for comment -- so far, no word back.
