It was determined that the truck exceeded the length limit for driving in Georgetown, and it did not follow the route designated by the city to large trucks.
The police in Georgetown announced on Wednesday they are looking for the driver of a semi-truck that was involved in a crash Monday. Their truck damaged a home and bridge near the accident site, before leaving the scene.
Around 7 p.m. the accident occurred when the driver tried to turn left from Argentine Street on 7th Street.
The police believe that retractable equipment under the trailer caught and tore the railing off the wooden posts it was mounted on.
The semi-truck did not use the designated truck route in Georgetown, even though it is for vehicles longer than a certain length and with a special permit. The driver’s route was too narrow to allow the semi-truck to pass. John Gaskins, of Georgetown Police Department, said.
Georgetown Police provided photos that show the wood railing from the bridge that has been ripped out protruding through the wall of a nearby house.
The crash occurred inside a house. A woman and a man were both there. The crash left one of the two with minor injuries.
The police said that the driver did not stop and the video of the truck driving out of town is very poor. It’s also difficult to see any marks on the vehicle.
According to the police, the video shows that the truck is heading west on Interstate 70.
It is still unknown how much the damages will cost.
