Car vs House

An adult male suffered non-life threatening injuries Friday morning when the white four-door sedan he was driving left the road and crashed into a brick house.

According to the Chilhowie Police Department, the crash happened around 4 a.m. at 524 Old Stage Road. The cause of the accident is unknown but could have been due to a medical emergency.

A family was asleep inside the home when the crash took place but no one inside was injured. The driver was transported to the hospital by Chilhowie Fire & Rescue.

The investigation is continuing and charges are pending.
