Two Injured After Car Crashes Into Fort Worth Home



    (Published Monday, Feb. 17, 2014)

    Police said two people were injured after a car slammed into a home in Fort Worth early Monday morning.

    Fort Worth firefighters responded to 3200 Northwest 30th Street at Rock Island Road to find a Chevy Lumina had crashed into a home.

    The male driver was seriously injured in the crash and taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital.

    Police said the man was diving on Rock Island but lost control of the vehicle and crashed through the wrought iron fence in the home's backyard and then into the home. The point at which the car struck the house contained the electrical service for the home.

    Five adults and three children were inside the home at the time of the crash. A mother and her twin 2-year-old boys were inside the room which was hit by the car. The mother had minor injuries caused by debris that were knocked across the room by the crash. Her two sons escaped injury.

    After the crash, a man who lives in the home went outside to find the car still running with tires spinning. The driver inside was unconscious and had his foot still on the gas following the collision. The man who lived in the home proceeded to break the window of the car and pull the driver's leg off the gas pedal. That man told firefighters that the car was extremely hot following the crash and may have been about to catch fire.

    Red Cross representatives responded to the scene to provide the family with shelter and food while firefighters covered the hole in the home with plywood.
