“There was enough damage to the home that a contractor was called to do an emergency shoring up,” Bennett said in a written statement.

Sumpter was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, in Atlantic City due to injuries sustained in the crash. He was treated and released.

Bennett said the accident was still under investigation. No charges or summonses had been issued yet.
