More details have emerged in a Littleton road rage incident that occurred last Saturday night.
Littleton Police have identified 70-year-old Daniel Egan of Whitefield as the driver of a 2018 Jeep Cherokee that snapped a utility pole and rammed into the front porch of a home. Egan’s actions and speed contributed to the accident, which left him hospitalized with serious bodily injuries.
Egan was traveling eastbound on Union Street at approximately 9:30 p.m. when he attempted to illegally pass another vehicle described as a black truck with oversized tires. According to police, Egan pulled into the oncoming lane and attempted to overtake the truck.
He overcorrected after he hit the left curb, police said, and crossed back over to the right side of the road where he severed a utility pole, continued 50 yards, and rammed into the front porch at 77 Ely St.
Three occupants in the home at the time of the accident were unharmed.
