LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – An SUV crashed into a home that was part of a four-plex complex and the woman inside escaped injury.
Police say the driver of the SUV was turning off Vance Road when he struck a wall and then hit a parked vehicle. The SUV then smashed into the front of a home that is part of a larger housing complex.
The driver of the 1999 Chevy Tahoe was issued a summons for reckless driving. Police are investigating whether excessive speed was a factor in the crash.
Investigators will wait on toxicology reports to determine if the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Firefighters with West Metro Fire Rescue rushed to scene near West Hampden Avenue and North Wadsworth Boulevard on Sunday evening.
The driver was injured and rushed to the hospital.
The woman inside cannot return to her home because the structure is unstable.
“Right now our investigators really feel that excessive speed was probably the underlying cause in what happened here,” Steve Davis with the Lakewood Police Department said.
