A driver fled the scene of a fiery crash early Friday morning at 73 Brown Road in Raymond. The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the driver.

Vehicle Fully Engulfed in Flames

Deputies arrived at the scene around 2 am to “find the vehicle fully engulfed in flames.” The vehicle had hit an embankment and burst into flames. First responders were able to put out the fire.

Police: "Speed and Alcohol Appear to be Factors”

The Sheriff’s Office said “the operator of the black, 2018 Chevy Silverado was able to self-extricate and flee the scene on foot prior to deputies arrival. Speed and alcohol appear to be factors in this crash.”

Driver May Have Been Picked Up
