Driver Flees Scene After Crashing into Downtown Greenville Apartment Building

An apartment in downtown Greenville sustained significant damage when a 2004 Ford pickup truck plowed into the Mulberry Court Apartments late Wednesday night.  Police say no one was injured, but the driver fled from the scene, leaving behind his truck. reports:

Sgt. Dan Fuller, a Greenville police spokesman, said the driver fled after the truck went about 3 feet into an apartment at 101 Mulberry St. at 11 p.m. The unidentified resident was in another section of the apartment and was unhurt, he said.

Police arriving on the scene, which is just off Washington Street, found the pickup but no one else, he said.

Fuller said investigators had checked to see who the vehicle was registered to, but he declined to release the person’s identity.

The truck has been towed from the scene, and the resident of the apartment is reportedly staying with family until the damage is repaired.  Greenville police are still searching for the driver.

Just as an aside, kudos to Greenville News staff writer E. Richard Walton for doing a good job collecting the facts on this story. He might want to consider running an in-service training for his fellow “reporters” at the News.
