GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Sunday morning a Clifton man woke up to find a mess of metal in his driveway. An unknown truck had driven up on his lawn and crashed into his two parked vehicles.

Anton Wood lives at 600 Irwin Street. Around 8 a.m. Sunday morning he had an interesting surprise on his front lawn.

"I looked out my front window and I saw this truck parked across my driveway," he says.

At first he didn't think twice about it. "I thought, huh, the neighbors had a party and just parked it there," says Wood.

But then he took a closer look. "And I noticed my car was shoved into my truck," says Wood.

Wood says he just stood there and didn't know what to do.

"It was kind of a surprise...good morning," says Wood.

State Trooper Chris Wright says this red F-150 truck was stolen sometime between the hours of 6 and 10 p.m. Saturday night, but when the truck crashed into Wood's cars, is still a mystery.

"Anywhere between 10:30 p.m. to 1:40 a.m. in the morning," says Trooper Wright.

Trooper Wright says neighbors are trying to help narrow down the time frame.

"Neighbors around report hearing a crunching or a loud banging sound," says Wright.

"I was thinking around 1:40 a.m.," says James Wheeler, a neighbor.

But no one is sure the exact time, because the neighborhood is used to hearing banging sounds from the Roadway truck depot across the street.

"There are many noises around here, so it's hard to tell," says Wheeler.

It wasn't until the next morning that they started to put two-and-two together.

"This morning, when the wife went out to get the paper, she said,hey, you should look at Anton's car," says Wheeler.

For Wood he hopes the culprit who wrecked his property is found and justice is served.

"It ruined my little car, did a bunch of damage to my truck and my mailbox is underneath it. And that's all I know," says Wood.

If you know any details about the stolen red F-150 truck or witnessed someone suspicious walking down F Road in Clifton after the hours of 10:30 p.m., please contact State Troopers.
