Halifax police want to talk to a truck driver who lost control of his boom and busted up another car last month.

At 6:50 p.m. on Jan. 12, the big red truck drove north on Barrington Street under the Macdonald Bridge. Its boom hooked power and telephone lines, bringing down part of a pole. The pole cracked into an SUV heading the opposite direction, police said.

"The male driver of the SUV was not injured but his vehicle sustained major damage. He was unable to obtain a licence plate for the truck or any company logos as it was dark at the time," police said in a news release sent out Friday.  

Police say it looks like the truck driver stopped, lowered the boom and then drove off.

Police hope the driver, or anyone who saw what happened, will get in touch via 902-490-5016. Tipsters can anonymously call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or contact them online.
