Goose Creek -- One person was injured and a house was damaged early Monday when a car drove through a screened-in back porch and into the home.
Police were dispatched to a report of a vehicle striking a house on Pine Hall Drive about 2:30 a.m., according to an incident report.
When officers arrived, they found a car in the house, between the kitchen and the living room, with the driver sitting inside. The driver said he thought his leg was broken, according to the report.
It took rescuers from the Goose Creek Fire Department about 30 minutes to free the driver from the car. He was taken to Medical University Hospital by EMS.
According to the report, the driver told police he blacked out as he was driving and woke up with his car inside the house. Witnesses told police that the driver may have been racing another car, the report said.
The driver, Joseph Theodore Pears, 23, of Prattville, Ala., was charged with reckless driving.
