Police searching for suspect who crashed truck into home, fled scene

ROCHESTER, NH (WHDH) - Police in Rochester, New Hampshire are on the lookout for a person who drove a truck into a home and fled the scene.

Police say they responded to a report of a vehicle into a home on 200 Lowell Street and found a GMC 2500 that had crashed into the house.

The crashed caused significant structural damage to the home, but nobody in the home was injured.

The homeowners, Irene and Floyd Turner, live in the home with their dogs.

“I thought it was a missile from North Korea,” Irene said.

Fortunately, everyone in the home was okay. Irene said that with thunderstorms in the forecast, she decided to bring the dogs upstairs to her bedroom.

Irene told 7News that, had the crash happened 3 hours earlier, she would well have been in the room when the truck crashed into it.

Officers say the vehicle’s occupants fled the scene. No suspects were located following a search.

A phone number is listed on the back of the truck, but the company that owned the truck had sold it and no longer owns the vehicle. The truck’s owner met with officers at the police station, but officers aren’t saying if that person is a suspect.

Irene says she has a message for the person who crashed into her home.

“You made a mess over here, and whatever you get, you deserve it, buddy,” she said.

Anyone with information about the incident or suspects are asked to contact Rochester Police at 603-335-6500.
