BARNSTABLE, Mass. – A Massachusetts man is facing a drunken driving charge after police say he crashed a pickup truck through the front of an 18th century home on Cape Cod.
Police in Barnstable say 20-year-old Michael Gregory of Harwich smashed the truck into the 1769 Alvan Crocker house in the Cotuit section of town shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday.
An elderly couple who lives in the home wasn't injured. Eighty-five-year-old Joseph Barrett Jr. told WCVB-TV that he and his wife, Anne, were awoken by what he called a "big thump" and discovered that part of a truck had crashed into the house.
Gregory was arraigned in Barnstable District Court on Thursday on charges including operating under the influence.
A man who answered a phone listing for Gregory declined to comment.
