Police look for help solving Concord hit-and-run mystery
CONCORD - Police in Concord are asking for the public's help in solving a hit-and-run mystery.
Police responded to the area of Industrial Park Drive in Concord for the report of a hit-and-run accident at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The victim told police that he had been traveling west on North Pembroke Road around 7:20 a.m. in his Dodge pickup truck. He said that as he crossed from Pembroke over the Soucook River into Concord he observed another truck traveling east toward him.
The victim said that this truck, described as a black Ford 1-ton dump truck (F-350) was pulling some type of trailer with a "roll tarp." The truck and trailer appeared to be hauling used roofing shingles.
The victim said that as the truck passed him, it did not slow down. A crank handle on the trailer, which is used to roll the tarp, was extended out and struck the victim's own vehicle. This caused extensive damage across three quarters the length of the victim's truck. Both vehicles came to a stop. As the victim was calling police, the suspect vehicle fled the scene without providing information.
The Concord Police Department is asking the public for its assistance in finding and identifying the driver of the Ford dump truck.
