Wednesday morning, around 11:30 AM, a driver in a red pickup truck was traveling West when he traveled off of Maple Avenue and hit a home. Police say that the driver was identified as William Parent and that he was transferred to Valley Regional Hospital after hitting the home at 126 Maple Ave.
During the crash, the truck had hit a small tree, which spun it around and propelled the rear end of the vehicle into the home.
The truck impacted the home right next to the front door, damaging the siding and pushing in a section of the wall. The cost of the damage to both the home and the vehicle are unknown at this time and authorities are continuing to investigate the incident. The status of Parent and his injuries are also unknown.
Late last year, 18-year old Louis Gratacos crashed his vehicle into a home at 79 Maple Avenue, damaging the wall near the front dear.
In both accidents, Golden Cross Ambulance responded to the scene.
