The station was closed on November 5 due to staffing issues, so no one was inside the building at the time of the crash.

When first responders arrived, Clark said they realized the car only damaged the railing of the handicap ramp. The building didn't suffer any other damage.

The driver was taken by ambulance to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro to be treated for injuries described as non-life threatening.
