At noon time on Monday a motor vehicle exiting the Prospect Street Bridge apparently lost control and crashed into the Dunkin’ Donuts building that’s located on Somerville Avenue in Union Square.

Emergency crews were called in immediately after a strong odor of natural gas emerged from the building’s ruptured gas line causing the evacuation of Dunkin Donuts and the surrounding area.

A elderly male driver and an elderly female passenger were both extracted from the vehicle by Somerville firefighters and treated at the scene for injuries then later transported to a local hospital by ambulance.

Union Square at the Prospect Street Bridge remained closed most of the afternoon and vehicles detoured until the natural gas emergency situation was under control.
