GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — The driver of a Chrysler Sebring escaped serious injury after the car she was driving overturned and struck a house Monday morning.
Trooper N.S. McKee said the driver received minor injuries after her car crossed the center line, ran off the road to the left, hit a ditch, overturned and came to rest in front of a house at 2706 Assembly Road in Greensboro.
McKee said the woman, who he did not identify by name, will be charged with exceeding a safe speed for the road conditions and the curve as well as having unsafe tires on her car.
A man who lives in the house was inside at the time of the wreck but was not injured. The man said he heard a loud sound then found the car in front of his house. He said he used a pole to break the front window of the car and helped get the woman out.
Greensboro firefighters helped shore up the overhang covering the front porch of the house before the car was removed by a tow truck. Assembly Road was briefly closed Monday morning while the car was removed but has since reopened.
The trooper said he could not accurately give the damage estimate.
