WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 56 Washington Ave.

WestportNow.com Image
An application for a permit is in process to demolish the house at Westport’s 56 Washington Ave.  Built in 1930 and remodeled extensively in 1984, the conventional two-story stucco house has 1,222 square feet and is situated on a .31-acre property. Because it was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Historic District Commission at its March 10 meeting. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

4-Year-Old in Car Seat Uninjured in Rear-End Crash

WestportNow.com Image
A 4-year-old girl strapped into a child’s car seat in the back of a sports utility vehicle was protected from injury when the vehicle, driven by her mother, was rear-ended while attempting a left turn on Westport’s Post Road West today near John’s Best Pizza restaurant.  No injuries were reported to either driver or the child. According to Assistant Fire Chief Larry Conklin, “The girl was well enough to continue on to her dancing lesson.”  He said the accident underscores the importance of children’s car seats and being properly buckled in. The damage to the rear vehicle required it to be towed from the scene. Both drivers are Westport residents. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
