Hampden County

(WWLP) – A driver will be criminally charged after their vehicle went off the roadway and crashed into a porch in Longmeadow Thursday night. 

Longmeadow police and fire departments received a report of a car that had gone off the road and struck a porch as a result of the operator texting and driving. 

“As you know, the State of Massachusetts developed a law prohibiting texting while driving and most recently the hands-free law,” Longmeadow Police stated in a Facebook post regarding the crash. 

The operator was not injured but will be facing criminal charges, according to police. 

It is unclear what specific charges the driver will face.
