Car Crashes Into Home

Many roads across the Metro still have snow cover. It's those road conditions, plus speed, that sent one driver off the road and into Sue Spraggins' home.

It happened Sunday March 2nd near 42nd Street and Ruggles Street.

Spraggins said it was a scary moment when she came outside after hearing the crash.

"I ran out and asked if he was ok, and down he went," said Spraggins.

She said the driver was slumped over in his smashed vehicle. That's when her neighbor Kevin Mobley came to the rescue.

"He (the driver) was like bleeding, and the door was like really pushed up on his side. so I went around to the other side, and tried to pull the door open, and I got him out," said Mobley.

In crashes like this, one of the big questions is always if alcohol or drugs were involved? But Mobley said the driver seemed scared, but coherent

"I thought he was going to pass out when I first pulled him out, so he was like really scared and then he seen all the blood, and he kind of panicked," said Mobley.

Before hitting the house, the driver struck an electric pole. From there he drove through a yard. Tire tracks are still visible in the snow.

Police continue to investigate, but a combination of speed and slick roads seem to be the reason this driver lost control.

"People need to slow down and just be careful," said Mobley.

Spraggins agrees, and is just glad no one else got hurt.

Police have not released the name of the driver, but they did tell us he refused medical treatment.

They do not believe that alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.
