What the Corcoran Marble storefront looked like soon after a crash early on Saturday morning.

A car plowed into Corcoran Marble early Saturday morning, damaging the storefront of the marble contractor, its owner said.

Owner Jack Corcoran said Wednesday that a young woman was driving on Wolf Hill Road and failed to turn, resulting in her plowing into the building at 88 West Hills Road. A spokesperson confirmed a call came in to police at 6:35 a.m., but did not have any further details.

Corcoran says the young woman who was driving left the scene and was tracked down. They found her, he said, by following a trail of antifreeze left by her car. Once they tracked her down, Corcoran said the parents of the driver brought her in and she explained that the crash was a result of her falling asleep at the wheel.

“She was a young girl and her parents brought her up here and she said she fell asleep,” Corcoran said. “Now I don’t know what you’re doing at 5:30 or 6 in the morning. I didn’t say anything to her.”

According to Corcoran, the town is currently replacing a knocked-down traffic sign and building inspectors have already been on the premises. Corcoran says it is safe to continue working in the building.
