Early Thursday morning, March 25th, a Jeep Wrangler crashed into the back of a house in east Toledo. A news report revealed that there were three people in the home at the time of the east Toledo jeep crash but none of them sustained any injuries.
The accident occurred at about 5:30 a.m. on Fassett Street between Oak and Miami streets. The homeowner, Chaz Boes, said he, his wife, and their 1-year-old child were upstairs, and a family friend was on the ground floor. The report showed that the Jeep stopped inches from where the visitor slept.
The 45-year-old driver crashed into their living room, and they had to rescue the friend through a window. Neighbors told the police that they heard the crash and had to rush out of their homes. They found that the Jeep collided with the back corner of the house, damaging the fence in the process.
Boes said they had to shut off the water and power supply to the house, pending repairs to the utilities. He noted that the vehicle narrowly missed both the gas meter on the house’s side and a propane tank on the porch.
The Jeep Wrangler remained at the scene until 6:30 a.m. when a flatbed took it away. The police report showed that the unidentified driver was uninjured in the east Toledo jeep crash. The police did not reveal any citation at this time.
