At approximately 12:11 AM on July 10, 2017, State Police-Marine Patrol Sergeant Seth Alie responded to a report of a vessel that crashed into a house on Deer Cove Road in Center Ossipee on Ossipee Lake.

Additional assisting agencies including the Ossipee Police Department, West Ossipee Fire Department, and Center Ossipee Fire Department arrived on scene at approximately 12:15 AM and found that boat was still running and no one was onboard.

Once on-scene first responders found that the vessel traveled approximately 75 feet from the water, across a beach, and over a road where it ultimately struck the building. Specifically, it was situated on the porch of the residence and had crashed partially through the side of the home. No one inside the house was injured during the crash.

Members of the Ossipee Police Department, West Ossipee Fire Department, Center Ossipee Fire, New Hampshire State Police and New Hampshire State Police - Marine Patrol searched the water and the shore line for any persons injured or involved in the accident. No one was found.

During the investigation it was determined that the vessel was stolen from a mooring at Bluffs Beach in Center Ossipee. The boat was a 2007, 22-foot Black Four Winns.

This incident remains under investigation. Anyone who may have further information related to this accident or who may have witnessed this crash is encouraged to contact Sergeant Seth Alie at 603-293-2037 or by email at
