NORWALK — Neighbors and police gathered around a car flipped on its side Monday afternoon on a narrow stretch of driveway between two Moore Place residences.

“We just heard ‘boom,’” said Pete Mancini, who was inside his Moore Place home when he heard the accident, which left dents in the side of the home and extensive damage to its fire escape, adjacent to where the Honda minivan laid on its side.

Three passengers were reportedly trapped inside of the car though no injuries were reported, according to Deputy Fire Chief Stephen Shay.

The crash occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Monday on the small, dead-end street. Neighbors gathered around the wreck, along with police personnel, assessing the damage.

Shay said it appeared the driver lost control and drove up the fire escape, causing the car to flip. He said the driver was lost and attempting to turn around in the narrow driveway when the accident happened.

Daniel Eaves and other neighbors said they didn’t recognize the car, which had Connecticut plates, or the passengers. He and others circled the car, contemplating the possible causes of the crash.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Eaves said.; @justinjpapp1; 203-842-2586
