Three people were hospitalized early Tuesday after a car missed a curve and slammed into a house near Weatherford, state troopers say.

Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Richard Hunter said the vehicle was traveling east on East Bankhead Drive and veered off a curve near Center Point Road and into a house about 12:15 a.m.

The driver, 49-year-old Catherine Jane Duffy of Benbrook, was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital with a broken leg, Hunter said.

Two people inside the home -- 62-year-old Jesse Jurek and 66-year-old Debra Jurek -- were hospitalized at Texas Health Harris Methodist. Jesse Jurek was treated for his injuries and released, but Debra Jurek remained hospitalized Tuesday morning with a neck injury, a DPS spokesman said.

The crash remains under investigation.
