Tractor Trailer Strikes Littleton Opera House
No one's been hurt, but there's been some damage to the Littleton, New Hampshire, Opera House after a tractor trailer unit struck the building this week.
Littleton police and fire officials tell the Caledonian Record that several vehicles strike the Opera House each year while attempting to make a sharp turn from Cottage onto Union Street. They say Wednesday's accident has resulted in more damage to the building than usual.
The driver of the vehicle, 57-year-old Ronald Goodwin of Vermont, was not charged and he was able to drive from the scene.
The opera house dates back to 1895 and anchors one end of Littleton's historic Main Street. It is a large white building with an octagonal clock tower on one corner.
