The man involved in the crash was driving in a red pickup truck and was captured on camera at 2:19 a.m. Monday as he turned the corner on Galen Street, driving through straight into the building, knocking down a pole before hitting the brick wall, according to Watertown police.

The man then drove away.

Investigators said Wednesday that they have located the truck, though they did not say if the driver was identified or if any charges have been filed.

The investigation is ongoing.
