At approximately 2:42 p.m. on Tuesday, a vehicle crashed into a house on the corner of Brock Street and Frontenac Street.
According to an Emergency Response Activity Report by Platoon Chief David Latour, Kingston Fire & Rescue (KFR) crews and the Tech Rescue Unit were on the scene to deal with the crash, along with the Kingston Police Force (KPF) and an ambulance.
Chief Latour also reports searches of the vehicle, area, and living room of the house by KFR found no people at the scene of the accident. The car was towed from the house and Tech Rescue stabilized the building. No firefighters were injured.
Marilyn Johnson, ArtSci ’21, lives across the street from the house the vehicle crashed into.
“I heard the swerve and saw the bang from my window and ran out,” she told The Journal in a written statement. “There were 4-5 guys fleeing the scene.”
Johnson said she stayed at the crime scene for approximately an hour to tell her story to officers. KFR estimates damages for the building and vehicle at $150,000.
