Jun 23, 2021

A two-vehicle crash in the area of 123 State Road Wednesday sent one person to the hospital and damaged the home at that address.

Police determined that the crash, which was reported at about 12:24 p.m., involved a 2017 Ford Escape driven by a 42-year-old Dartmouth woman and a 2013 GMC van driven by a 74-year-old Boston woman. Police did not identify either driver. 

One of the drivers was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries, police said. The exact condition of that individual, who was not identified, is not known, police said.

The Dartmouth Building Inspector and various utility companies responded to the scene, police said.

The crash impacted gas lines to the home, according to Fire District No. 3 Deputy Chief Ted Borges. 

No one was at the home when the accident took place, according to Bryan Correia, who lives at the residence.

He added that residents were hopeful that electric and gas service would be restored soon and that the house remains habitable. 

“Nobody got hurt,’’ he said of the building’s occupants. “That’s what matters.’’

The crash remains under investigation, and no charges have yet been filed.
