An out-of-control car that left a Laurel County road ended up going almost all the way through a house, authorities say.
Two people in the car were injured, and the house was extensively damaged, according to a news release from the Laurel County sheriff’s office.
Christopher Hoskins, 36, of London was driving a 1998 Toyota eastbound on Ky. 80 around 3:30 p.m. Friday when the car left the road and crashed into the vacant house, the release said. The house is adjacent to the homeowner’s current residence.
Hoskins was injured in the wreck, as was his girlfriend, Kayla Holland, 26, of London; the release said she was in the front passenger seat and was thrown into the back seat on impact. The couple’s 5-month-old child was in a safety seat in the back seat and was not hurt, the release said.
