Car Hits House in South Lansing

An SUV crashed into a home in south Lansing overnight, hitting a gas line and sparking a fire. It happened just after midnight in the 500 block of Doris Street off of Miller Road. Lansing Police say the driver of the truck jumped the curb and hit the side of the house.

People inside the home were able to get out safely. There is now quite a bit of water damage to the house. The Red Cross is assisting the family.

Several people were in the SUV. None of them suffered injuries.

The fire department evacuated the block until they could get Consumers Energy on site to turn off the gas.

Police do not think alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. The cause is still under investigation.
