ETNA, Maine (WABI) - The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence in Etna after learning a dump truck crashed into it.

They say earlier Thursday afternoon a dump truck tried to avoid a car pulling out of a driveway but ended up hitting a mobile home.

It happened on Stagecoach Road.

The truck hit the side of the mobile home which caused significant damage and impact on a gas tank.

Police are worried about the gas leaking into a well which is why Red Cross has been called to help with placement for the family.

“There’s significant damage to the home,” said Cpl. Ryan Fitch of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s office.

“One occupant was in the home when it was struck but no one was harmed luckily. There’s a pretty sizable fuel spill that we have Maine DEP coming out to take care of which caused the second house to be affected. We have the red cross on the way to help the two families.”

There are no further details at this time.
