A Massachusetts man is facing a number of charges after allegedly slammed his pick-up truck into a west dennis convenience store.
It came out of nowhere…a pick-up truck crashing through tedeschi’s on route 28 in west dennis around 12:30 a-m sunday.
A customer narrowly escapes injury by jumping over the counter.
What happens next is even more shocking.
The driver tries to back out, but keeps ramming into a post.
The crash woke up damon mccaaron who lives five houses away.
I heard a loud crash and some squealing tires and I knew something was amiss.
So, I ran out into my front yard to see a pick-up truck entering and exiting the building.
Eventually the driver was able to back out and speed away.
It headed off west on Route 28, and you could actually hear debris falling off of his truck.
There was some debris on Route 28 in Dennis and into Yarmouth.
It was found by some Yarmouth officers.
Police eventually tracked down the dodge truck and driver three miles away in Yarmouth.
The truck, with a purple heart plate from texas, is now impounded at dennis police headquarters.
And you can see that despite crashing into tedeschi’s, there’s relatively minor damage to the truck.
well, that’s another story.
Tedeschi’s is closed.
Swan river liquors right next door opened an hour late sunday, but amazingly there is no damage inside.
Not a single bottle broke in here.
Nope, we lucked out big time.
The alcohol fairy was with us today.
The suspect is identified as 32-year-old christopher sprague.
He’s charged with vandalism….leaving the scene of an accident…. and negligence.
He’s been released on his own recognizance and was due in court today.
