Lorry smashes into home for disabled children with two trapped inside vehicle

A crash has forced an entire residential street to be cordoned off after it ploughed head on through a garden wall and into a window of a disabled home for children.

Firefighters were called to an address on Meadow Lane in Ainsdale on Saturday January 23 after a lorry ploughed into a home.

The house is reportedly known as Springbrook Children’s Home, which is currently closed due to the coronavirus, reports Liverpool Echo.

On arrival, police and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service discovered two people trapped inside the vehicle.

Stunning photos of the crash show the aftermath of the collision, which appears to have caved in the front of the property.

Other pictures show the door to the lorry is now hanging off from its hinges, while the front bumper lays on the floor.

Bricks from the wall around the property lay strewn on the floor and a wall at the front of the house has also been partially damaged.

Firefighters can be seen staring at the truck, which has been left in place as an investigation is carried out.

A cordon has now been put in place around the house and the residential street has been sealed off as structural engineers assess the scene.

The safety of the building will be determined before both the property and the street are re-opened to the public, it has been reported.

It is not yet known how incident occurred or what made the lorry drive head-on into the wall.
