Police Identify Driver Who Allegedly Crashed Into Raynham Home
RAYNHAM (CBS) – Police have released the names of the driver and passenger who allegedly crashed into a Raynham home and then fled. The car crashed through a bedroom, just feet from a baby in her crib.
Officers have identified 23-year-old Brad Bigos of Raynham, as the passenger and 22-year-old Stephanie Lyn Petersen of Middleboro, as the driver.
Police say around midnight on Saturday, Petersen crashed into the home on Michael Road, put the car into reverse and fled down the road. A heavily damaged Pontiac Grand Am was found abandoned about a quarter of a mile away.
Bigos turned himself into police that night and was arrested on an unrelated warrant for Breaking and Entering.
Petersen will be charged with numerous motor vehicle offenses including, Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol, Operating to Endanger and Leaving the Scene of an Accident. She will also be charged with Assault and Battery against Bigos.
Police said Peterson had been kicked out of a local bar earlier that night because she was too intoxicated. At some point in the night, she allegedly became hostile and struck Bigos.
Raynham Police continue to investigate the incident.
The three people in the home at the time of the accident were not injured. The crash caused an estimated $50,000 to $100,000 damage.
