A piece of construction machinery fell on top of a home on Colden Avenue. It happened around 2 p.m. Monday. Multiple streets near Boston Road were blocked off to clear the scene. Officials told News 12 that no one was inside the home at the time the machine collapsed.

“The tool, a pile driver, remains on top of the house at this time. The Department of Buildings told News 12 that the pile driver was being used at a construction site next door.
