STURBRIDGE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Fire crews worked Sunday night to assess the damage after a driver drove into the Super 8 motel.
Luckily, no one was injured in this incident, but the damage is extensive.
Sturbridge Fire Chief John Grasso told us the incident happened just after 7 p.m. Sunday.
Grasso said a man was trying to park, but he said his brakes didn’t work and he crashed through the front of the hotel.
Grasso added that the man was driving very slow, but the impact completely crushed through the wall of one of the hotel rooms.
“The District 7 technical rescue team is here on-scene repairing the building and then the building owner will have an assessment crew come out to take care of the necessary repairs,” Grasso explained.
One person was displaced from that room, but the hotel has made other arrangements for that individual.
No one was in the room at the time of the accident.
The Super 8 will stay open and no other guests are impacted.
