STAMFORD — A two-car garage attached to a North Stamford home was left in unstable condition after a vehicle slammed into it Sunday afternoon, fire officials said Monday.

Firefighters were called to the residential home on Lynam Road at 4:40 p.m. Sunday after the crash occurred, Deputy Fire Chief Matt Palmer said in a statement.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a significant amount of damage to the area around the home and began efforts to stabilize the garage, Palmer said.


When Rescue Company 1 arrived at the home, they used specialized struts to prevent the roof of the garage from falling in, he said. Then they used a grip-hoist device to pull the Audi passenger vehicle out of the garage area, Palmer said.

Because of the extensive amount of damage, they called the Stamford Building Department to inspect the structure to asses it for safety problems, he said.



There were no injuries reported to the driver or the occupants of the home in the accident, the statement said.

Stamford police were investigating the cause of the accident Sunday afternoon.

Why Do I Need a Free Vehicle History Report?

VinCheck.info can help a used car buyer make an informed decision. We sift through tons of data to give you details you can use to evaluate any car:

  1.   Vehicle Specifications:
  • year of build
  • color
  • technical features
  • optional equipment installed, and more.

Compare and contrast the details provided to you by the seller with what the vehicle history report provides.

  1.    Safety Ratings: (IIHS test results)
  • crash-worthiness (how well does the vehicle protect its occupants in a crash)
  • crash avoidance and mitigation (available technology to  prevent a crash or lessen its severity)
  1.   Market Value: the estimated average value people are paying for the same car in your area.

This is a valuable tool for finding out the car’s worth to help you negotiate for a fair price.

4.   Fuel Efficiency: how far a car can travel on a specific amount of fuel.

This is important information at a time like this with unstable gas price and uncertain economy.  

5.    Warranty/Manufacturer Recall: warranty problems or recalls.

In most cases, dealerships offer recall repairs for free.

6.   Title Records:

  • Name of the state/city
  • Number of times the vehicle has been registered
  1.    Sales Records: listings of a vehicle for sale by a car dealership or a private party.

This information can help you find out the car’s price  in the previous sale.

8.   Lien Records: records of a claim to ownership of the vehicle by a finance company.

A lien on a vehicle means you have to pay the lien-holder first if you are going to buy it.

9.   Accident Records: minor and major accidents especially those covered by a police report.

  • Every year, the NHTSA reports close to six (6) million car accidents.
  • In 2016, fatal vehicle crashes led to 37,461 deaths.

Some cars sustain damages so extensive they become unsafe to ride. Make sure to buy a car with reliable and safe parts for the road.

10. Theft Records: reports of theft and theft recoveries from NICB (the federal crime bureau) and industry sources.
