Bangor house hit by SUV

This house in Bangor had an enclosed porch until shortly before 1 p.m. Monday, when an SUV plowed into it.

The house is at 575 McKinley Ave.

An SUV traveling east on Third Street failed to negotiate a left turn, striking the home.


Officials said the house was knocked off of its foundation, and the front porch was completely destroyed by the SUV.

Three women were trapped inside the home and could not get out because most of the doors would not open due to the accident.

The women were eventually assisted out of the basement of the home.

None of them were hurt.

The unidentified SUV driver was taken to Pocono Medical Center.
