Car smashes into North Attleboro home

NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — Police are investigating after a car crashed into a home in North Attleboro late Thursday night, causing significant damage.

The crash took place at about 10 p.m. at a multi-family home on Elm Street. Police have released few details about the incident, but neighbors told Eyewitness News the woman behind the wheel accelerated over the edge of an elevated driveway and careened down into the lower level of the home.

“When it hit the house it vibrated everything,” said neighbor Sandra Liversedge. “There was a lot of crunching of wood.”

Neighbors said the driver lives next door to the home she hit.

No one inside the home was hurt, according to Liversedge, and she also said she believed the driver was not seriously hurt.

Police brought in a massive crane to remove the car.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
