 Tewksbury Police are investigating a single-car accident that occurred early Tuesday morning on Shawsheen Street.

The investigation is a bit more challenging because the driver of the vehicle fled the scene before officers arrived.

According to Tewksbury Police, officers were dispatched to a section of Shawsheen Street, where a car went off the road and wound up in the Strongwater Brook, a stream that ultimately merges with the Shawsheen River after first flowing under Shawsheen Street.

Officers searched the rather steep embankment, as well as the surrounding area, but were unable to locate the driver. The vehicle, a luxury sedan, was towed from the brook at around 8 a.m.
