A blue Honda Odyssey crashed into a home on Augusta Street on Tuesday afternoon.
The driver of the van was attempting to make a right turn into a driveway along Augusta Avenue when, according to people at the scene, a work truck for Bainbridge Heating and Air rear-ended the van, pushing it into the house.
The nose of the van made it through the wall before the vehicle finally came to a stop. Those who were in the home at the time of the crash reported no injuries. Drivers of both vehicles also reported no injuries aside from being “a little shaken up.”
According to Robert Bisson, the driver of the Odyssey, he didn’t know if the driver of the work truck was speeding but added that speeding was a frequent problem on Augusta Avenue.
“I sit out here and smoke, and there’s people at nighttime that come flying by here,” Bisson said. “I’ve seen police cars doing like 70 mph plus with their lights on.”
“There’s people that do not obey the 25 mph limit here and they really need to,” he added.
The driver of the work truck, Evan Corelli, said that when he saw Bisson’s brake lights he assumed that he was just slowing down to match the 25 mph speed limit and was caught off-guard when Bisson continued to slow down to turn into the driveway.
According to one of the residents of the home, who did not wish to be identified, it is not the first time a vehicle has struck the house.
