A Bridgeport man was injured during a single-vehicle crash after he lost control of his vehicle and plowed into the corner/porch of a home.
The crash took place at 9:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 30, on Boston Avenue, said Terron Jones, spokesman for the Bridgeport Police.
According to Jones, the driver, a 35-year-old man, was driving a 1998 Honda Civic at a high rate of speed when the vehicle crossed the intersection of Boston Avenue and Central Avenue and left the roadway.
The vehicle then continued north, mounted the sidewalk, struck the southeast corner of the house located at 1417 Boston Ave., traveled along the east side of the residence, and crashed into a porch located at the rear of the home, Jones said.
The Bridgeport Fire Department responded and extricated the driver from the vehicle. The driver was transported to Bridgeport Hospital by AMR Ambulance and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries, Jones said.
Witnesses report seeing a male passenger fleeing the accident scene running west on Boston Avenue.
No further description of the passenger was provided and a canvass of the area was negative.
The Bridgeport Police Department Crash Reconstruction Team is conducting an investigation.
Anyone with additional information, related to this crash, is asked to contact the Bridgeport Police Department's Traffic Division/Officer Keith Ruffin at 203-576-7640.
