Oneida County Sheriff’s Deputies are looking for the driver who crashed a pick-up truck into tree, a utility pole wire and a home before driving off early Monday morning.

Investigators say it happened at about 1:15 a.m. Monday when they were called to the intersection of State Route 26 and Cooper Street in the town of Vernon for a reported hit-and-run car accident. The Vernon Fire Department also responded to the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office says the investigation revealed that the vehicle was traveling south on State Route 26 when it crossed over into the north-bound lane and struck a tree, a utility pole support wire and a home. 

Deputies say the driver left the scene south on State Route 26.

Investigators are looking for assistance in identifying the vehicle involved. The vehicle is believed to be a 2003-2007 Chevy Silverado 2500, possibly tan in color.

The vehicle is missing the lower front center bumper and both fog lights. The vehicle is also missing part of the driver side headlight and driver side mirror.
