A juvenile driver fled after crashing a Jeep into a house in Abbot on Jan. 4.

The juvenile appears to have been speeding down Main Road about 4:40 p.m. before veering off and smashing into a home, according to the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Office.

“Speed and inexperience were factors [in the crash], but the main factor was swerving to avoid a deer in the road,” Sheriff Robert Young said Jan. 5.

The sheriff’s office did not release the name of the driver because they are a juvenile.

The crash caused extensive damage to the house, but the couple living there were not home during the incident.

No charges have yet been filed.
