Crash involving school bus sends SUV into Hyde Park home, snaps utility pole

BOSTON (WHDH) - A crash involving a school bus sent an SUV into the front of a home in Hyde Park on Monday and left power lines dangling over the roadway.

Officers responding to a report of a crash on Wood Avenue found an SUV crumpled up against a white house and a snapped utility pole blocking the street, according to the Boston Police Department.

Video from Sky7 HD showed a school bus parked nearby.

Neighborhood residents told 7NEWS that no students were onboard at the time of the crash.

The 23-year-old man driving the SUV told 7’s Alex Diprato that he was following the slow-moving bus when he accidentally hit the wrong pedal, clipped it, veered off the road, and crashed into the home.

The scene has been roped off with yellow police tape. Motorists are urged to avoid the area.

A utility crew is working to restore power to the neighborhood.

There were no reported injuries.
