Front-end loader pushes flipped-over truck down highway in Ossipee

Sunday, March 04, 2018

Police said a Ossipee man is facing charges for using a front-end loader to push a pickup truck down a highway.

Officials said a family dispute boiled over when 55-year-old Edward Evans used his company’s construction equipment to flip the truck on its side and push it 1,000 feet down Route 16.

He deposited it at an auto repair shop.

Ossipee Police Sgt. Anthony Castaldo said the incident started with a report of an assault on Feb. 22. Evans faces charges including assault and reckless operation.

Evans is free on $5,000 personal recognizance bail. He said Saturday from his Wolfeboro home that it “wouldn’t be a good idea” to comment on pending criminal charges.
