LYNN — A Toyota Camry broke through the VNA Hospice metal fence in a two-car crash that caused minor injuries to the drivers and blocked Broad Street for about 40 minutes on Friday afternoon.

The accident happened at the intersection of Market and Broad streets at around 1:15 p.m. This is when 911 received the call and the police and EMTs were dispatched, said Lynn Police Lt. Glenn Dunnigan. 

Two sedans collided when a Toyota Camry driver was making a left turn from Market Street onto Broad Street while a Honda driver was going straight down Market Street north towards downtown Lynn, said Officer Michael Donovan. As a result of the accident, the Toyota Camry jumped onto the sidewalk and crashed into the metal fence of the All Care VNA and Hospice. The Honda stood  in the middle of the intersection, facing the opposite direction from where it was going.

The police could not determine who was at fault right at the scene, said Donovan at about 1:40 p.m., while tow trucks were preparing to remove the vehicles from the intersection.

Both drivers suffered minor injuries, Donovan said. 

The Toyota Camry driver was taken to a hospital, said Bob Goudreau from All Care VNA and Hospice, who came outside after the crash and put yellow “Caution” tape on the broken fence.
