    damages house

    A car crash at the intersection of Forest and South streets in Rutland damaged a home when one of the cars careened into the porch.

    Two children in one of the vehicles were taken to the hospital for examination, according to city police.

    Police say two cars crashed in the intersection at around 9:30 p.m. Sunday. One of the drivers, 26-year-old Bethany Thompson of Rutland, failed to yield to another car already in the intersection driven by 29-year-old Sheila Nichols of Rutland, according to police.

    When the two vehicles collided, Nichols’ sandals reportedly became stuck to the pedal and she was unable to stop the car before it struck the porch of the house at 101 Forest St. The damage to the structure was described as significant with more than $2,000 worth of repairs estimated by the homeowner.

    Police said two children ages 3 and 8 who were riding in the backseat of Thompson’s car were taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center after the crash.
