State police have an arrest warrant for a 25-year-old Derry Township man accused of crashing his pickup truck into a house along Route 217 and fleeing the scene.

Police are seeking Anthony J. Desport of Bradenville in connection with the crash that occurred about 2:10 a.m. Sunday along the 1300 block of the two-lane highway.
