Fire officials investigating Duxbury retaining wall collapse

DUXBURY, MASS. (WHDH) - The Duxbury Fire Department is investigating a retaining wall collapse that occurred on Friday.

The collapse in the area of 80 Park St. did not result in any injuries.

At the time it happened, the owner of the car, Mary Ann Johnson, was sitting inside her home and unaware of what had happened outside.

“It was a real loud bang,” she said. “It sounded like bomb went off.”

18:26 – “Maintenance called… not happy.”

She then stepped outside.

“I just couldn’t believe it,” she said.

The hood of her 2015 Toyota RAV4 went from squeaky clean to crumbled.

“I took very good care of it,” Johnson said. “It didn’t have a speck on it.”

No one was near the wall at the time, so no one was hurt.

But Johnson did have to cancel her weekend trip to visit family. Instead, she’ll be parked here.

“The adjuster is going to come out,” she said. “It’s pretty much crushed.”

The cause of the incident remains under investigation.
