SAGINAW, MI – Police are looking for the driver of a truck that crashed into a house in Saginaw, killing a woman asleep inside.
At approximately 2:40 a.m. on Thursday, January 14, police responded to an accident at 4102 Pemberton St., on the city’s East Side. They arrived to discover that a black 2010 Chevrolet Silverado had crashed sideways into the one-story house, said Saginaw Police Detective Sgt. Matthew Gerow.
Firefighters located Sharon Price, a 66-year-old resident who died under the truck. She was apparently sleeping on a sofa in her living room when the truck crashed in her home, Gerow said.
Two other adult women and two minors were in the house at the time, Gerow said.
The driver of the truck fled on foot before the police arrived. Officers located a passenger who was in the truck.
“We believe we have identified the pilot, but he is still pending,” Gerow said at 9:10 am Thursday.
The accident severed a natural gas line, prompting Consumers Energy staff to intervene at the scene, Gerow added.
Saginaw Police Traffic Division officers are currently investigating the incident.
