NASHVILLE (WSMV) - Metro officers are searching the area of Stewarts Ferry Parkway Friday morning after a stolen truck was ditched in a pond.
Police tell us they were searching for the reported stolen truck in the area when they got the call. They say someone drove the stolen truck through the grass of the Stewarts Ferry Apartment Homes and jumped out before it crashed.
News4 spoke with a woman who was woken up by a knock on her door from police.
“I was sound asleep. I wear hearing aids, which weren't in. It took the police officer a little while to get me awake. When I open the door and saw a police officer inquiring about my car I was little worried," neighbor Jacqueline Bradley said. "He just wanted me to move it so they could get the tow truck in close enough to pull it out."
Officials are now looking for the driver involved.
