While the house appeared to be untouched, the garage had major structural damage. As a safety precaution the fire department shut off gas to the residence.

The homeowner said she was on her porch smoking when a red Volkswagen hopped the curb, hit a street sign and crashed into the garage. The impact shoved the homeowner’s truck into her neighbor’s house.

The homeowner said a young man got out of the vehicle and fled on foot until police apprehended him. Grand Ledge police said the red Volkswagen had been stolen in Lansing.
