Suffolk County police are looking for the hit-and-run driver that crashed into a house in Holbrook early Thursday morning and fled the scene, authorities said.

Residents were awakened by a vehicle crashing into their house on Namrof Lane near the corner of Grundy Avenue shortly after 2 a.m., according to a police spokeswoman.

The driver fled the scene. Nobody in the house was injured. An Islip town building inspector is checking the damage to the house.

Sixth Precinct officers are continuing the investigation.

The incident comes two hours after 19-year-old Shane McAdams flipped his Ford Mustang on the lawn of a house in his hometown of South Huntington shortly after midnight Thursday, police said.

McAdams was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.


Second Squad detectives charged him with driving while intoxicated. He will be arraigned at a late date.
