House in the way of motorist; so he drove into it

There was a freak accident on Freetown Road at one o’clock this morning when an SUV barreled into a wooden house. Official information has not been released by police and the press officer has not accepted our calls or responded to messages. But residents say the GMC Envoy was speeding on Freetown Road, into a closed area that is being repaired. The driver of the vehicle reportedly lost control and slammed into the house, breaking the concrete stairs and the second floor verandah. News Five spoke to an eyewitness, who chose to conceal her identity, but questioned the sobriety of the vehicle occupants.

    I hope the driver is prosecuted appropriately and given a harsh sentence to make an example of him.

    They really have to come down hard on those drunk houses. The police have to stop houses from going out drinking and hitting cars on the road.

    Kept drunk houses off the road, NOW!

    I hope they hold everyone accountable for this accident. These men were drunk and they did not care if they hurt anybody. I hope that the media follows up on this and find out who all were involved in this accident.
