A Clinton homeowner is fortunate not to have been injured; however, his attached garage sustained significant damage. Just before 12:30 pm today, March 22, firefighter/medics were alerted to a vehicle that struck a house in the 7900 block of Godfrey Court in Clinton.
Upon arrival firefighters found a 2-story single family home with an attached garage. There was an SUV that had driven partially through the back wall of the garage. The driver, who is also the homeowner, was reportedly pulling into the garage when for unknown reasons to firefighters, suddenly accelerated and drove through the back wall. Fortunately there was no damage to the home itself and no displacement is required.
The adult male driver was shaken but not injured and declined transportation to the hospital.
