Delaware Home Condemned After Comcast Vehicle Crash; Cable Employee Ticketed

Phillip Dampier April 18, 2012 Comcast/Xfinity, Consumer News No Comments

A home in Frederica was deemed dangerous and unsafe Tuesday after Comcast employee David R. Cox, 50, drove the company’s 2011 Ford F450 truck into the front porch.

Cox told authorities he lost control of his truck and smashed into two parked vehicles and then into the home.

The accident destroyed the front porch and damaged the home’s foundation and structural integrity.  Local housing inspectors later condemned the home.

Neither the Comcast driver or occupants inside the house were injured, but the homeowner was left without both vehicles and the home.

Delaware State Police charged Cox with inattentive driving and released him from the scene.

Building inspectors have temporarily shored up the home with temporary braces and have cordoned off the property for the safety of passersby.
