Quincy police looking for person who crashed, then abandoned pickup


Quincy police are trying to find the person who crashed a pickup through a wrought iron fence and into a yard early Friday morning, then abandoned the vehicle.

The accident happened about 2:15 a.m. on the corner of C Street Southeast and 1st Avenue Southeast.

Police found the heavily damaged 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche with both the driver and passenger-side airbags deployed and traces of blood.

The registered owner of the pickup lives near the scene but police have been unable to locate that person.

Captain Ryan Green of the Quincy Police Department said they suspect the registered owner was the driver but that hasn’t yet been established.

“We have some feelings that it was him, but we don’t know for sure,” Green said.
