October 17, 2011

Three people were injured early Monday when a car they were traveling in crashed into a house south of East 38th Street and Emerson Avenue. When policed arrived about 3:30 a.m., they found an adult male lying on the ground outside the car and two women trapped inside. All three were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No one was inside the one-story brick home, which suffered extensive structural damage. Police believe the vehicle, a 2001 PT Cruiser, was traveling north on Emerson before it left the roadway for unknown reasons. They are investigating the cause of the accident.
