NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - A car crashed into a Rutgers University fraternity house early Friday morning, university officials confirmed Monday afternoon.
At around 10:30 a.m. on Friday, the car went into the Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity house, 106 College Ave., according to Rutgers spokesperson Neal Buccino.
The car had been traveling towards Huntington Street when it was struck on the side by a second vehicle, causing it to careen on the front lawn, hit the structure and become wedged into a crawl space under the house’s front porch, Buccino said.
The original sections of the home were built in the 1800s and has been home to Alpha Sigma Phi since the 1930s. It is considered a local landmark, with architecture consistent to many of the older homes commonplace in the residential streets in the back of the College Avenue Campus.
There are about 20 members of the fraternity who live on the first, second and third floors of the home. None were injured in the crash.
New Brunswick police made their way to the scene, followed by Rutgers police and emergency officials, Buino said.
The driver of the first vehicle had no sign or complaints of injury, Buccino said, but was transported to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for an evaluation.
