MILFORD – Tammy and Barry Jones were awoken at 1 this morning by a loud crash in the kitchen of their home on Route 28 in Milford.
“It was a rude awakening,” said Tammy. “There was a car right in front of our dishwasher.”
According to Tammy, the driver of the car first tried to back out, then asked them to help him leave. “Then he asked if he could use our bathroom,” she said. “And I called 911.”
Sheriff’s deputies were quickly on the scene, and removed both the driver and the car. The name of the driver has not been released.
The Milford Fire Department – Tammy and her sons Russ and Andy are members – also came by and helped the family board up the hole.”The wall was knocked off the foundation,” she said. “Our counter is now in our stove.”
The family is working with the insurance company to see if they will be able to stay in the house while repairs are made or if they will have to relocate. “We’re going to have to rebuild our home,” she said. “We’ve lived here 27 years. But we have an awesome community, and we’re so grateful they came and helped us out.”
