The driver of a Saab was apparently injured when his car slammed into the basement of a home on Pine Dr., Octoraro Pines, Colerain Township, shortly after noon on Thursday, September 12.
The car ran off the road and down an embankment before hitting the house. The driver fled into the woods, running toward the banks of the Octoraro Lake and leaving a trail of blood behind him. Emergency responders and police searched the area but could not find the driver.
The impact did not cause structural damage to the home, fire officials said.
Quarryville Fire Company, an ambulance from Oxford's Union Fire Co., and state police were called to the scene.
