Driver flees after striking home

Franklin County, VA (WSLS) Dante Colie and a friend were working in his Franklin County, Virginia garage just after midnight on February 27 when he heard a loud thump.

Thinking his 26-pound cat jumped from a dresser, Colie went inside to check.

"We looked in there and saw the dresser laying over facedown on the floor and we looked at the debris," he recalled. "I was like ‘Man, somebody hit the house.’"

He’d barely dialed 911 before he heard something else.

"About that time we heard the engine start up and I just looked and I said, ‘Oh no!’"

Surveillance video outside Colie’shome confirmed what he heard. The driver took off, and Colie was not far behind.
