BREWER, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Police in Brewer are searching for a car they say fled the scene of a crash Tuesday night.

Brewer police said the car hit the side of a house and knocked down power lines on Summer Street at about 7 p.m., then drove away.

A witness said they thought they saw a child in the backseat.

Public Safety Director Jason Moffitt said he didn't seem to think it was anything other than the driver fleeing the scene of a crash, but said he intends to keep the public informed with any updates.
