Car crashes into home overnight

Posted: Updated:

 A car traveling down Park Ave crashed into a house Friday morning.

According to police, the accident happened at 3 a.m. when the driver smashed into the front porch.

The driver, who police believe was in a rental car, fled the scene.

The man inside the house was sleeping on the second floor at the time of the accident, and wasn't harmed.

The resident says he recently suggested a guardrail be built outside his home for protection, but City Council denied his request.

The incident is under investigation and police have not confirmed if alcohol is a factor.
