Citrus Heights police are looking for a man who crashed a U-haul truck into a home and then fled on a bicycle.

The incident occurred about 5:30 a.m. Thursday when the truck smashed into a house near Van Maren Lane and Garden Gate Drive. Nobody inside the house was injured, according to police.

The suspect fled on a bike he apparently took out of the back of the U-haul after punching a large hole in the house and abandoning the rental vehicle, police said.
