Motorist Crashes Into Elderly Woman’s Home, Flees the Scene


Police in Acton, Maine, are searching for a motorist who allegedly crashed into a home and fled the scene.

Deputies told WCSH that the crash occurred on Acton Ridge Road around 11 p.m. Saturday night.

Witnesses report a pick-up truck appeared to be traveling too fast while approaching a curve in the road. The vehicle allegedly left the roadway, crossed a lawn, and crashed into an elderly woman's home. The woman was trapped on the second floor because of the amount of debris caused by the crash.

The vehicle fled from the home and was last seen heading towards Wakefield, New Hampshire. Police say the vehicle may be a wrecker with a flat bed or just a flat bed truck. It should have extensive front-end damage.

Anyone with information is asked to call Deputy Corey Sweatt at 207-324-1113.
