TAUNTON, Mass. (WPRI) — Taunton police are investigating after a pickup truck crashed into a building early Sunday morning.
Officers responded to the area of 59 Broadway around 2 a.m. and found a Toyota Tundra chit three unoccupied cars before crashing into the front of a building.
The driver, a 22-year-old man, fled from the scene on foot and was later found at his home. He was evaluated and taken to the hospital.
Taunton police say they are “taking steps to connect the driver with appropriate services,” and no charges have been filed.
12 News spoke with three people who work inside the building that was hit who say they were made aware of the crash around 3 a.m. Sunday.
“Our landlord had called us to let us know,” said Beth Fitzgerald, Owner of Pathway to Recovery in Taunton. “He said there was a truck that crashed into a car and then into our building and was embedded in our waiting room area.”
Pathway to Recovery is an addiction clinic that was expected to open Monday, according to Fitzgerald. She says she’s worried about how the crash will impact their ability to take in patients.
“Clearly we’re committed to treating addiction and to the wellness of the community,” said Fitzgerald. “We are committed to pushing forward even if we shift to telehealth for this week until we figure out a location.”
Police say no injuries were reported and it’s unclear what led up to the crash at this time.
