Car crashes into North Charleston home; no injuries
A SUV crashed into a North Charleston home Wednesday morning.
The damaged one-story brick house sits at the corner of Londonberry and Brandywine roads.
The home’s owner Jo Ann Grohler said she and her husband Harold were asleep when they heard what sounded like an explosion about 5:55 a.m.
The couple got out of bed, and moved quickly to make sure the home’s gas line wasn’t the source of the sound.
They made their way from their bedroom, which sits at the back of the home, toward the front. Then, through the surrounding darkness, Grohler said she saw headlights piercing into their living room where a wall should have been.
“I thought, oh my God there’s a car in my house,” she said.
Her realization was confirmed by the vehicle’s horn blasting continuously.
Grohler said the situation became even more bizarre when she recognized the vehicle’s driver as her next-door neighbor.
Grohler said the woman appeared shaken up, and struggled to find the words to explain what happened.
From what Grohler understood, the woman attempted to turn her vehicle around on Londonberry when she lost control, struck two mailboxes, drove through the couple’s front yard and into the house.
North Charleston Police Department spokesman Spencer Pryor said no one was hurt in the wreck.
Pryor could not provide any more details.
The wreck’s cause is still under investigation.
