Driver Crashes into Lincoln Avenue Home

Jeremy Owens, courtesy Alameda Fire Department    Residents on Lincoln Avenue were surprised to find a Hyundai sticking out of a home after a crash Oct. 16.

A driver plowed into a home on the 2100 block of Lincoln Avenue after an accident on the morning of Oct. 16. 

The blue Hyundai penetrated the front window of the home leaving a gaping hole near the front door. A mom and her twins were in bed when the collision occurred. They had to be extricated from the property by Alameda Fire Department (AFD) officials. 

The driver of the Hyundai got into a collision with the driver of a black Subaru. The impact from the Subaru caused the Hyundai to veer off the road on Lincoln Avenue and into the home, according to AFD. AFD was on the scene soon after the crash. 

AFD Division Fire Chief James Colburn said the mother, the twins and the two drivers were all treated at the scene. The mother was deemed OK, but the twins were taken to a local hospital as a precaution. The two drivers also were taken to the hospital. None of the injuries was life-threatening, Colburn said. 

Both vehicles were towed from the scene. The name of the drivers and the homeowners were not released. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
