IPSWICH — Chief Paul Nikas reports that police responded to a Broadway Avenue home Tuesday morning after a Mini Cooper crashed through an exterior wall and came to rest inside.
At 11:38 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, police were called to 42 Broadway Ave. for a report of a motor vehicle that had crashed into a house. Upon arrival, police discovered a Mini Cooper had crashed into the lower level of the home after hitting a mailbox and driving over the front lawn.
The driver of the Mini Cooper, Nick Pappas of Ipswich, was trapped inside the car when police arrived. The first officers at the scene removed Pappas from the car and provided medical attention until an ambulance arrived.
