WORCESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - A driver who crashed into a home in Worcester Tuesday night was found to be suffering from a gunshot wound, police announced. 

The crash happened near 9 p.m. Tuesday on Paine Street in Worcester. 

In a statement Wednesday morning, police said officers responded to initial reports of a vehicle that hit a house. Worcester police said officers found the driver, a male, at the scene. 

The driver was taken to a hospital, according to police. His condition was unknown as of Wednesday near 5 p.m. Police did not share additional information regarding the extent of his injuries and did not say how he was shot.

“I did see him and it seemed like he had an injury on his head or his face and I was trying to convince myself it was from the car, but the window was down so it made no sense,” said Katie Begley, who ran over to help at the crash scene Tuesday night. “We were trying to call out to him, like ‘Hey man, hey man, are you okay?’ and he was totally unresponsive.”

Lorie Carlson said the SUV narrowly missed her bedroom window when it crashed into her house.

“I heard a ‘pop, pop’ and then a terrible ‘bang, bang,’ and I jumped out of bed,” Carlson said. “I screamed, I said, ‘That was gunshots.'”

Investigators returned to Paine Street on Wednesday to measure, take photos, gather security video, and collect evidence.

Worcester police said their investigation was ongoing and that no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information is asked to send an anonymous text to 274637 TIPWPD, send an anonymous message online at worcesterma.gov/police or call police at (508) 799-8651.

A dark-colored SUV could be seen wedged into the front of the house on Paine Street Tuesday night, with splintered wood and debris scattered around the scene.

Two cars were towed away shortly before 11 p.m.
