Car crashes into Cambridge home
A Cambridge family woke early Sunday morning after a car crashed into their house, and it’s not the first time it’s happened.
“I woke up this morning to a loud bang, and I first thought it could not be another car that hit our house,” said Elizabeth Baverstock, who lives in the home with her parents.
Police say no one was in the car when the accident happened. At around 2:30 a.m. the Mini Cooper rolled down downhill on Gordon Street, smashed into a neighbour’s car before hitting the side of the garage.
“This one appears to have come down from the top of the hill, so it gathered speed as it was coming down,” said homeowner Gary Baverstock.
It caused approximately $15,000 in damages.
It was a similar sight in October of 2005. A station wagon rolled down the hill and crashed into the house. It was also unattended. It caused less damage than the second crash.
“It simply rolled a lot gentler into the home,” Gary said.
“We’re going to go through some anguish over the next month or so getting everything repaired, and it’s not a good time of year to be doing that, but we’re just happy that nobody got hurt,” he continued.
