A house on McLure Drive in Albion was damaged extensively Friday afternoon after an SUV drove into it - just three months after another car crashed into the house's front yard.
The Dodge Aspen SUV crashed into the home on the 24600 block of McLure Drive in Albion cutting off the gas, electricity, water, Internet, and telephone.
The SUV was heading west when it lost control and drove across one lawn, taking out several hedges and crashed into the front portion of the neighbhouring house and through the exterior wall of the house's carport.
Emergency personnel were on site for several hours in the afternoon after the 3 p.m. crash and a crowd of neighbours surveyed the damage.
The street was blocked for a few hours as police and firefighters investigated the scene and a tow truck dislodged the vehicle.
According to police, the 54-year-old female driver was examined at the scene and was not injured. The use of alcohol was ruled out as a factor in the crash.
Police have recommended a charge of driving without due care and attention.
The homeowners were renovating the house and had moved half of their possessions into the garage.
Many of the items just "disintegrated" in the crash, said Karen Rogers, who lives in the home with her husband Paul Swift.
"I can't believe how much damage one truck has done," she said.
There were also strong chemical odours lingering in the house the next morning when they woke up.
Rogers said there are a lot of cars speeding along their road and the neighbours have now approached the municipality to request a roundabout at the corner to slow down the traffic.
This crash follows an accident on Feb. 24 when a 15-year-old was driving with a younger passenger in the car and crashed into the front lawn. It was the same day the Rogers had moved into the house.
The police continue to investigate Friday's crash.
