A Fairfield County home suffered serious structural damage when a resident driving a new car crashed through the garage of a home and into the side of another.

The incident took place around 8:30 p.m., Monday, March 15, when the resident of one of the homes at 360 Old Town Road, in Trumbull, crashed through the closed garage, said the Trumbull Volunteer Fire Department.

 The vehicle continued through the attached garage, then crashed into and breached the rear wall of a neighbor's home, causing a partial structural collapse, the department said.
