TRENTON — A dark-colored sport utility vehicle hit the front of a house on John R. Avenue at 5:17 a.m. Dec. 30, creating a loud booming sound before the driver backed up and fled.
The homeowner said the SUV driver shifted into reverse to leave his lawn and struck a tree on the easement before fleeing east on Teifer Avenue. The SUV left tire tracks on the front yard where it was backed up.
The front of the man’s residence was damaged on its west side, sustaining a one-foot diameter hole.
