A refrigerator came out of the truck and hit and damaged a car in the driveway/

The truck is still in place because it appears to be supporting the porch, according to police. 

A building commissioner responded to the scene to check the structural integrity of the home.

National Grid also responded to the scene and shut off the gas to the home as a precaution.
