Polk County Sheriff’s Office detectives are asking for the public’s help in a Hit and Run crash investigation. 

Sometime between 11:00 pm on Monday, March 17, 2014, and 8:15 am, on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, a Dodge Ram pickup truck (possibly a 2012 model, medium gray in color,) ran off the road at the intersection of Eagle Lake Loop Road and Lake McLeod Drive in Eagle Lake.  After the truck left the roadway it struck a residence located at 15 Lake McLeod Drive.

The truck and residence sustained significant damage.  The truck sustained damage to its front end.  The trucks front grill, front bumper, a head light and two fog lights were left behind at the scene.  It appears that the truck fled the scene eastbound from the incident location.
