Three adults inside a Modesto home escaped injury after a woman lost control of the car she was driving and plowed into the house, authorities said.
The driver of the car also escaped injury during the accident Monday, according to Battalion Chief Randy Wheeler of the Ceres Fire Department.
It was the second time in three days an automobile has ended up up in a Stanislaus County home. Saturday, a Ceres police sergeant suffered minor injuries after a car sideswiped his patrol car, which went off the road and crashed into a house near Smyrna Park, the California Highway Patrol reported.
Monday, a woman, whose name was not available, was driving westbound on River Road, Wheeler said. For an undetermined reason, she veered into the eastbound lane and onto the south side of the road. She then overcorrected and headed north over the road and into the house in the 2200 block of River Road.
Never miss a local story.
Wheeler said her compact car struck the wall near the garage and living room, knocking blocks and debris into the kitchen.
The driver refused medical attention, and the owner of the home found housing after building officials deemed it unsafe to occupy after a natural gas main into the house suffered damage.
