Driver Crashes Jeep Into House

Another driver is arrested under Michigan's new Super Drunk law Wednesday morning after crashing into a house.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says the 42-year-old woman from Michigan Center missed a curve on Springport Road in Rives Township--- and drove right into a home just before 5 am.

No one inside was injured. The Undersheriff tells News 10 the driver blew a .18--- more than double the legal limit.

That new law applies to anyone who has a blood alcohol content of .17 or higher. If they are convicted they face 180 days in jail, a $200-$700 fine and one year license suspension, among other penalities.

    I'm so glad your Grandmother is alright, Kari. She must have some instinct that made her stay out of the chair that night. I just don't get why people drink & drive. Seems like bars could limit people to just 1 drink or something. Happy Thanksgiving to you & your family.

    I grew up in this house.. My parents are now "Homeless!" This is a Great example of why Drinking and Driving DO NOT GO Together! While the driver, I hope is in jail! Has some time to understand what they did today and the effect that it has had on many lives. Thanks for the Holiday present. It's one that my parents did not need. There are many things I would like to say...I hope this person is shown what they have done and they are held "ACCOUNTABLE for their ACTIONS!"

    That is my grandparents house and normally where that jeep is parked my grandmother has been sleeping in a chair because of a sore hip. luckily for some reason she chose to sleep on the couch.which is to the left of the jeep. both of them were in the house during this incident. This right here is why you don't drink and drive. its not just you it affects its people around you. Just think about it people!
