NORWICH – At approximately 6:30 a.m. Monday, a driver in a white 1997 Jeep Cherokee was traveling north on Rt. 32, East River Road when he crossed the yellow divider line, slid across a lawn and collided into a mobile home.
The jeep penetrated the outside wall and entered two separate bedrooms, causing serious damage. The residents of the mobile home are Terry Crandall and his fiancee Heather Blackman. “I was sound asleep with my son; he was sick,” said Crandall. No one in the house was injured, but the jeep went through two separate bedrooms, partially destroying a bed and striking another. The beds belong to his 13-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son. “My grandmother lived here for 29 years,” said Crandall. “There is history here.”
