Car crashes through Trumbull garage

TRUMBULL — An Old Town Road home suffered structural damage Monday night when a resident driving a new car crashed through the garage of one house and into the side of another, according to Trumbull Volunteer Fire Co. spokesman Alex Relkin.

Firefighters spent about an hour with the vehicle and assisting the wrecker with removal.

Officials from the town’s Building Department also were on hand to assess the damage to the house. There were no injuries in the incident.

“The driver lives there, and it appears they were pulling into the garage when the incident happened,” said Lt. Brian Weir of the Trumbull Police Dept.

It is not clear if this was a case of driver error or if the vehicle malfunctioned in some way, Weir said.

According to Relkin, the vehicle crashed through the closed garage door, then went through the garage and the garage’s rear wall before coming to a stop against a neighboring house.
