ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — Police are investigating after a woman slammed her vehicle into the side of an Attleboro home Thursday morning.
The 72-year-old Attleboro woman had previously been involved in another crash at North Main and West streets, according to police.
She then took off from that scene, eventually crashing into the nearby home. Police believe speed was a factor in the crash.
The vehicle left a gaping hole in the front of the West Street home and caused extensive damage to the porch, roof and siding. Police said it’s not a total loss, however, it will need emergency repairs.
The car had to be lifted over the trees in the yard by a crane to remove it from the building.
The woman was transported to the hospital with minor injuries and is expected to be OK. No one who lived inside the home was hurt.
Police said the driver has been charged with fleeing the scene of a crash and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
