Car Drives Into Fanwood House
A car has driven into a home in Fanwood.
WABC TV reports that the police believe the car, a black BMW, was speeding down Paterson Road, went through a neighbors yard, hit some rocks, went airborne and overturned before slamming into the house.
The car approached speeds of 100 mph according to the Scotch Plains Patch. "It came screaming through the intersection, hit the top of the first car and then went airborne. It was horrifying to watch. He was going so fast I expected to see police cars chasing behind, but there were none," one witness told the news website.
The driver lost control of the car according to WCBS TV and caused extensive damage inside the home.
The unidentified 47-year-old driver, a man from Plainfield, was removed from the car with little injury according to the Scotch Plains Patch and taken to Robert Wood Johnson hospital.
