Police: Stolen car crashes into CT home, leaving it ‘uninhabitable’

SOUTHINGTON — Community services are helping the residents of a Meriden Avenue home after it was struck by a car, leaving the home “uninhabitable,” police said.

The car was determined to be stolen out of Waterbury, police said.

The vehicle was heading north on Meriden Avenue when it struck a guardrail near Lewis Farm, police said in a press release posted to Facebook at 9:25 a.m. Friday.

The vehicle then crossed over the dividing line and left the road, crashing into the home, police said.

The driver sustained “obvious incapacitating injuries,” police said, and fled on foot. Authorities found him on Carter Lane.

A passenger in the vehicle was injured, police said. Both the driver and passenger were taken to the hospital.

The town’s assistant building inspector said the home was uninhabitable as a result of the accident.

One person inside the home complained of pain in their leg but declined to go to the hospital.

Police said the case is under investigation.
