Man hospitalized after crashing car into North Charleston home

An elderly man was hospitalized after he crashed a tan Buick Century into a North Charleston home Tuesday morning.

An elderly man was hospitalized after he crashed a tan Buick Century into a North Charleston home Tuesday morning.

The man was driving down Braddock Street when his vehicle jumped a curve, came barreling through a front yard and into a brick house on North Rhett Avenue, police spokesman Spencer Pryor said.

A woman who was at the home baby-sitting said she heard a loud boom, then came outside and saw a car sitting against the front of the house.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, said a man got out of the car and walked around the car inspecting the damage.

The car tore down part of an electrical wire, and left a gaping hole at the base of the home.

The cars front end was mangled, its air bag deployed and shattered glass was scattered throughout.

No one inside of the home was injured, Pryor said.

The man may have had a medical condition that contributed to the wreck, Pryor said. Paramedics transported him to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The wreck is still under investigation, Pryor said.
