GREENSBORO, N.C. – A distracted driver ran a stop sign and caused a wreck that resulted in a car crashing into a Greensboro home, according to police.

Greensboro police said officers were called to a home near Alamance Church and Nelson Farm roads at about 2:40 p.m.

Trooper A.R. Carter said a 19-year-old man was driving a 1995 Toyota Camry and became distracted by his GPS.

The driver then ran a stop sign and collided with a Honda SUV, according to Carter. The collision forced the Camry into the home.

There was a father and his son inside the home, but they were uninjured and were in a different part of the house.

The driver was not injured. He had a younger sister in the back seat who is also okay.

The couple in the Honda SUV decided to go to hospital for care due to prior health conditions as a precaution. They are expected to be okay.

The Camry’s driver has been charged with a stop sign violation. No other charges are pending.
