PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A two-car collision in Providence Monday night caused one vehicle to crash into the side of a home.

The crash took place just before 6 p.m. at the corner of Fisk and Bernard Streets. According to city police, one car ran a stop sign and hit the second vehicle, which then slammed into the side of 53 Fisk St.

The homeowner told Eyewitness News she was gardening outside but had stepped away just prior to the crash.
