BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — No one was injured when a motorist crashed into the porch of a house on Savoy Street Friday.

Early indications are that the man was attempting to park on the street when his Mercury Grand Marquis suddenly accelerated forward, went through a small front yard and collided with the porch.

Both the car and the porch sustained damage. The Building Department was called to the scene to assess any structural problems. The driver and occupants of the house were not injured.

The accident happened at about 3:30 p.m.
