Significant damage to historic Norwell home after pickup truck crashes through living room

NORWELL, Mass. — The Norwell Fire Department swiftly responded to reports of a car that barrelled into a home on Central Street Tuesday.

Upon arrival, crews discovered a trapped solo occupant inside the vehicle, amidst extensive damage to the structure of the home.

Rescue efforts were immediately initiated to extricate the driver and transport them to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“It’s the second time it’s happened in the last two years on this street,” said Norwell Deputy Fire Chief William Milne. “That building right over there got hit last year by a vehicle. It’s just a sharp turn people don’t slow down.”

No one was home at the time of the crash. The extent of the damage to the home is significant, fire officials say.

It’s unclear what caused the truck to crash, that’s still under investigation. A section of the home will need repairs, but incredibly no one was seriously injured in the incident.
