GREENE — The Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office on Friday was searching for the driver of an SUV that slammed into a utility pole, bringing it down on Sawyer Road late Thursday night.

Deputies say a silver vehicle hit the utility pole and snapped it at about 10:10 p.m. Thursday. Police said the driver fled the scene after striking the pole.

They found parts at the scene that belong to a silver 2007-2010 Ford Edge SUV, according to the sheriff’s office. The vehicle should have substantial damage to its front end, and it should be missing a piece of its bumper cover.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with information about the crash to contact Deputy Matt Noyes at 753-2599.
