Two cars collide, then one smashes into house, Brookline police say
BROOKLINE – Two cars on Route 13 collided Tuesday night, and then one veered off the road and smashed into a house, police said.
No one was injured in the crash, which happened around 7:25 p.m., Police Chief William Quigley said.
The house at 246 Route 13 sustained substantial damage to its exterior and some damage to its interior, he said.
The car that struck it also was substantially damaged, Quigley said.
The accident remains under investigation, he said.
A 2011 Subaru Impreza sedan, driven by William Weir, 39, of Amherst, was traveling northbound on Route 13 and collided with a 2011 Toyota Sienna minivan, driven by Jonathan Earl, 41, of Amherst, which also was traveling northbound, police said.
After the collision, Weir veered across the southbound lanes of Route 13 and smashed into the house, police said.
The minivan sustained minor damage, and Earl was able to drive it from the scene, Quigley said.
