ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Police are searching for a person involved in a hit and run after a bucket truck struck two vehicles and a house in northeast Roanoke early Wednesday morning.

According to Roanoke Fire-EMS, crews responded to reports of a vehicle crashing into a structure shortly before 5 a.m. on Wednesday, May 26 in the 100 block of Trinkle Avenue NE.

When units arrived at the scene, they discovered a bucket truck had hit two vehicles and a carport, scraped the side of a house, and cut the AEP service line to the house.
