2 hurt and home damaged in 2-car crash in Providence

Some car accidents are more than just two vehicles colliding. There are times when the collision itself can head off the roads and into homes, yards or pedestrians. When accidents like this occur, the collateral damage is high. Those who weren't even on the roads are impacted.

That happened in Providence, Rhode Island, recently when a two-car accident left the road. Around 6:00 p.m., one vehicle ran a stop sign and hit another. The second vehicle went off the road, striking a home on Fisk Street.

The homeowner had been gardening just moments earlier but fortunately had stepped away. Her home was damaged, but she was not injured.

The driver of the second vehicle was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, while the driver of the first fled the scene. His passenger remained and was taken to Rhode Island Hospital for non-life threatening injuries as well.

Although the car hitting the home was a shock, an investigation showed that the house was safe for people to return to. The police have not stated if they intend to file charges against the driver who fled.

This crash, like many others, could likely have been prevented. Whenever you're behind the wheel of a car, you should make sure to pay attention to the road and follow the traffic laws. If there is a stop sign, make sure to stop completely so that you don't hit someone coming from the other side. If you end up being the victim of a dangerous driver, know that you do have the right to pursue compensation.
