Brockton: Man drives car through garage

A Brockton couple is doing O.K. after crashing their car through their garage.

It happened as 68-year-old Alan Gilman and his wife were returning to their Thurber St. home Saturday afternoon.

Deputy Fire Chief Michael Williams told WATD that Gilman was waving to some neighbors as he was pulling into the driveway, and accidentially hit the gas instead of the brakes.

The car surged forward, caving in the garage door and damaging the frame.

Gilman’s wife, Deborah, was treated for a minor facial injury.
