Unoccupied Car Rolls into Wilbraham (ME) Fire Station

An unoccupied vehicle crashed into the Wilbraham fire station after the driver stopped at a Boston Road liquor store, but did not leave his manual-transmission car in gear with the parking brake set.

The 31-year-old driver told Wilbraham Police that he thought he had left his Audi sedan in gear when he stopped at Wilbraham Wine & Spirits, which is directly across from the fire station at 2770 Boston Road.

The car rolled backwards across Boston Road, striking and damaging one of the station’s large bay doors at about 2:40 p.m., according to police, who had not filed charges against the driver as of late Monday afternoon.

“It’s still under investigation,” police Capt. Timothy Kane said. “I guess there’s enough damage that they’re trying to figure out how to close the door.”
