A car crashed into a home near the intersection of Bay Road and Gardner Street on Friday morning, March 4. The car on the back of the flatbed tow truck is from an earlier crash on Highland Street in Hamilton.

A quick moving snow squall caused some problems for about an hour on Friday morning in Hamilton, including several car crashes. Amid it all, there was also a dog rescue.

At about quarter to 9 a.m., Hamilton first responders were called to a report of a car into an utility pole on Highland Street near Pingree School. At the same time, firefighters were also called to the report of a dog fallen in the water, possibly along with its owner, at 100 Essex St., according to Hamilton Fire Chief Philip Stevens.

The dog was rescued and nobody was injured in the crash, where the driver signed a refusal of medical attention and the Ford station wagon was towed away.

There ended up being a second two-car crash near the first crash on Highland Street. Nobody was injured in that crash and both vehicles were driven away, Stevens said.

At about 9:15 a.m., a car crashed into a house at 925 Bay Road (Route 1A). Again, nobody was injured and the home was not damaged but there was damage to a stonewall. The car was drivable afterward.
