Car crash into Valley YMCA in Ansonia sends one to hospital
ANSONIA — A woman was taken to the hospital Tuesday afternoon after her car crashed into a wall in front of the Valley YMCA.
The accident was reported about 4:25 p.m. at the Y building at 12 State St., across the street from the Ansonia Armory.
Ansonia Police Lt. Patrick Lynch said a 71-year-old woman was driving south on North Cliff Street and tried to turn left onto State Street but lost control of her vehicle, which ended up hitting a concrete wall and railing for a ramp in front of the building.
There were no pedestrians or people in the building struck, and no other vehicles involved.
Emergency responders were able to get the woman out of her vehicle within about 10 minutes.
Lynch said the woman didn’t complain of any injuries but was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital to get checked out.
There was no major damage to the building, he said.
Emergency personnel were clearing the scene by about 5:15 p.m.
