WALPOLE (CBS) – Police are looking for a driver who fled the scene after crashing into the front door of a Walpole home.

Debris left behind at the scene had "traceable information," police said. As a result, police determined the car is a Chevy Sonic made between 2012 and present.

Based on tire tracks, police believe the car fled down Gill Street toward McDonald's.
