They say the driver left the roadway and hit a flower container before crashing into a home which was occupied. Officers say the driver backed out of the home, but later hit multiple parked vehicles.

The driver eventually drove away.

Later that morning, police responded to a report of a stolen 2020 silver Dodge 2500. The owner told police he found it severely damaged a few blocks from his home.

No one inside the home was hurt. Victim’s advocates are helping them find temporary shelter.

The truck’s owner faces potential charges.
