Quincy police are searching for the driver of a truck that crashed into the east side of the Maine Center, 535 Maine, early Saturday morning.

Officers responded to a vehicle accident at 2:22 a.m. at the corner of Sixth and Maine and found that a 2004 Dodge Ram pickup truck had struck the building on the northwest corner of the intersection.

An investigation revealed the truck was southbound on Sixth Street from Hampshire when the driver lost control. The truck struck and sheared off a light standard before crashing into the building.

Witnesses told police that occupants of the vehicle had fled the scene prior to the officer's arrival. The driver has yet to be identified.

Brady M. Fielding, 24, the owner of the vehicle, was found at Fifth and Hampshire and was determined to be the occupant of the truck at the time of the crash. Fielding was arrested for failure to report an accident to police and was released on bond.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the crash.

Damage to the building consisted of several broken windows and damage to the brick facade. The Quincy Fire Department assisted by temporarily securing the building until repairs can be made.
