A car crashed into a tree, then into a home on Pine Rock Avenue in Hamden on Tuesday at approximately 8:39 a.m., according to Hamden Police.
The driver, who police said lives across the street, was taken to the hospital as a precaution and the couple who lives inside the home was not hurt.
“[I] just heard a loud crash, come out and see a car backed into my house through the porch,” Debbie Mosher said. “Luckily they said the foundation isn’t damaged so it’s just the front porch. And everyone was OK. It can be fixed.”
Debbie and Bill Mosher said there have been several car crashes on their street in recent years. Two of their cars were previously hit. Police also confirmed a utility pole on the corner was hit several times.
“It wouldn’t hurt to put a speed bump or something in here, or some kind of sign to slow down, bad curve or something,” Bill Mosher said.
Police at the scene said the driver was speeding and failed to stay in the lane.
A news release says the driver was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital to “assessment.”
The crash is under investigation.
