The Driver Was Injured But Survived the Crash

Sergeant Amy Nickerson said the female driver was taken to a local hospital as a precaution, but her injuries appeared to be non-life-threatening. The driver's identity has not been released.

Residents in the Home Were Sleeping When the Crash Happened

Two people were in the Eastern Avenue home when the vehicle ran into the front of the building. Both were sleeping at the time of the crash and neither was hurt. A large piece of plywood covered the front of the house in the hours after the crash.
