Driver fled the scene

A truck went through a Red Deer home early Sunday.

RCMP said the homeowner called the police around 5 a.m. on Avery Street in Anders neighbourhood.

Operations Officer with the Red Deer RCMP Holly Glassford said Monday the truck went through the walls and into the living room of the house.

“The homeowner was home at the time,” Glassford said, adding no injuries were reported.

“The truck was essentially driven in a corner of the house.”

She described the structural damage as “significant” to the house, as well as the vehicle.

“We don’t know a lot about the truck at this time (Monday afternoon), it was not reported (stolen),” she said adding, the driver fled the scene.

The investigation is ongoing. Those with information are asked to call the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.
