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.
