Shortly after 7:00 this morning, a vehicle plowed into a house at 2805 45th Street in East Lake. The resident of the house was reportedly in bed when the vehicle knocked her through the bedroom wall. The victim was thrown up against the wall of the house next door. Chattanooga firefighters pulled her from the debris, and handed her over to paramedics with Hamilton County EMS, who transported the victim to Erlanger Medical Center.
Captain Leston Rorex with Engine 9 said she received some cuts and bruises, but remarkably, her injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
Chattanooga Police are investigating the incident, and Sgt. Tom Layne will have more on this incident as details become available.
