Tuesday afternoon was a busy one for Duxbury fire fighters and EMTs. A child swallowed a rock on Duxbury Beach in the early afternoon and later a car crashed into a two-story wood frame residential building at 30 Tremont Street.
Deputy Fire Chief Chris West said the child was breathing and conscious when EMTs arrived at the beach but was taken to South Shore Hospital as a precaution.
“Apparently the gentlemen’s foot slipped off the brake and hit the gas, and the car went forward and struck the doorway leading in to the building,” West said.
The Building Inspector was called to the scene of the car crash. The building was deemed habitable upon inspection and repairs were planned for later in the afternoon. No one was injured.
