Four Squirrel And Seven Days Ago…

A Massachusetts teenager crashed into the ancestral home of Abraham Lincoln after she swerved to avoid hitting a squirrel. I told you New Englanders drive like maniacs.

A historic house built in 1650 by the great-grandfather of President Abraham Lincoln has been wrecked by a teenage driver crashing into it to avoid a squirrel.

The Samuel Lincoln House on North Street in the town of Hingham, Massachusetts, was badly damaged when a 19-year-old motorist crashed into the front of the historic home on the morning of July 15.

First responders at the scene found a 2014 Audi Q7 lodged in the home’s living room. About half of the car entered the home, according to a statement from the Hingham Police Department.

Right about now, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln is thinking, “Give me six hours to chop down [this chick] and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

  1. On the bright side it was an ancestral home and not Lincoln’s home. Can’t believe she got by with just a citation. Fortunate for her.


  2. I call BS.
    Don’t get me wrong, squirrels deserve what they get, but I think the squirrel’s innocent.

    Just like I call BS when people shoot themselves “cleaning their gun.”
    Most of them were twirling their guns or trying a quick draw or something.

    She was texting and went off the road.
    I’d bet a dollar.


  3. Ronni – There would have been more of an uproar if she crashed into Bobby Orr’s home.

    Cathy – I’m guessing she won’t have vehicle privileges for quite some time.

    Veeshir – You’re probably right. Besides, squirrels almost always run away when you get close. I’ve never hit one, and I’ve been driving for 34 years.
