A late Monday morning crash has sent three people to the hospital and caused heavy damage to a city home.
Dennis Leger, aide to Springfield’s Fire Commissioner, says that just after 10:00 a.m., emergency crews were called to the corner of Tyler and Orleans Street for a two car accident.
One of the vehicles involved in the crash – a pickup truck – went up over the curb and came to a rest after hitting a front porch.
Three people were taken to an area hospital to be evaluated for minor injuries.
Leger adds that the porch is unsafe and has been condemned.
