Motor vehicle strikes residence

On Thursday 3/24 at 1:30am a vehicle travelling on Pawtucket Blvd. went off the roadway and struck a residence.  The operator of the vehicle suffered minor injuries.  The home suffered extensive damage, however nobody was injured in the residence as it was not occupied at the time of the crash.  An investigation revealed that the operator was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs nor did it appear that speed was a factor; the operator stated that he believed he fell asleep while driving.  The owner of the residence was notified and responded to the scene as did the Tyngsborough building inspector.  The operator was cited for failing to operate a motor vehicle in marked lanes.

Grant received from CVS

The Tyngsborough Police Department applied for and received a grant in the form of a medical drug collection unit worth $700 from CVS/pharmacy.  We would like to thank CVS for their grant, which is donated via their “drug disposal for safer communities” program; this unit is located in the Lobby of our police department and is available for residents to dispose of their unused medication.  Unused medication in homes is too often used by adolescents who are battling addiction or accidentally ingested by a child who finds a bottle which is not secured.  We urge residents to bring their unused medication to the police department and dispose of it safely in our drug collection unit.

Thank you.
