SUV runs into home Friday near Oak Grove
Oak Grove, SC (Paul Kirby) – A small SUV rammed into a home Friday morning injuring one person. The Lexington County EMS, their fire service, and the SCHP responded. This happened in the 500 block of Chisholm Way in a normally quiet residential neighborhood that’s just off Mineral Springs Road.
According to Lexington County officials, the driver ran off the road, collided with the home, and came to rest in the home’s living room. A child playing in that room of the home was struck by the vehicle. The injured were treated by Lexington County EMS on scene before being transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Lexington County Fire Service also responded with their collapse vehicle. This truck carries lumber, jacks, saws, and other special equipment that may be necessary to stabilize a structure in just this sort of case. That specially trained team was able to brace the damaged portions of the home so the vehicle could be removed.
What made the driver lose control of the Jeep is under investigation by the SCHP.
