WOONSOCKET – Janette Adams was asleep in her first floor apartment at 7 Veterans Way when she heard a crash Thursday morning that nearly knocked her out of bed.
Squinting through the blinds of her bedroom window, Adams did a double-take when she saw the front end of a late model Winnebago-style motor home stuck in the mangled front porch of the multi-family apartment building.
The 20-foot-plus RV slammed into the front of the building just after 11:30 a.m., lodging itself in the front porch, which was nearly torn off the building.
