Car Crashes into House in Cromwell

A driver crashed into a home in Cromwell on Monday morning, causing heavy damage to the residence.

Fire officials said the residents of 15 Nooks Hill Road were sleeping upstairs when a driver in a gray SUV hit the house around 12:30 a.m.

The residents got out of the house OK, but the driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to Hartford Hospital. Only one person was in the car, fire officials said.

The 911 call came in at 12:32 a.m. and police said the driver went onto the curb on the north side of the road, became airborne, hit a tree and landed on the front lawn, where the SUV again became airborne and hit the house.

When police arrived, they found the vehicle against the house and noted that there was a large hole in the residence from the crash.

The building inspector is assessing the structural integrity of the home, but it is thought to be uninhabitable.
