Area residents asked to help locate driver involved in hit and run in Rochester

ROCHESTER – Police are looking for the driver of a blue Buick that struck another car on Columbus Avenue and fled the scene Saturday night.

Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded around 8:42 p.m. after the southbound Buick struck a northbound 1995 Honda Civic, driven by Robert Bregy, 50, of Somersworth, near the intersection of Summer Street.

According to witnesses, the Buick crossed into the northbound lane and collided with the Civic head-on. As a result, the Civic sustained substantial damage to the front of the car and caused the air bags to deploy.

Paramedics transported Bregy to Frisbie Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Columbus Avenue remained open during the investigation and the Honda was eventually towed from the scene.

Meanwhile, the Buick fled north on Milton Road – Route 125 - and possibly drove into Farmington on Chestnut Hill Road. It had substantial frontend damage, was leaking fluid from the engine compartment and had one head light damaged, according to police.

The accident remains under investigation.
