COLUMBIA, Mo (KMIZ)
Columbia Police have taken a man into custody after they believe alcohol was a factor in a car crash which happened around 3:00 a.m. on Thursday.
The crash happened in the 500 block of N. Providence Rd.
According to CPD, the driver was traveling northbound along N. Providence Rd. and a woman was driving westbound on W. Worley St. Police say the woman was in the intersection when the man collided with her. One of the cars involved in the crash then hit a home nearby, causing minor damage.
When ABC 17 news crews arrived to the scene around 3:15 a.m, crews saw at least a dozen first responders on the scene of the crash.
The Columbia Fire Department told ABC 17 News that when when crews arrived, they find someone was stuck in car. The person was freed shortly after.
First responders said both drivers were hurt in the crash. The man had minor injuries and the woman had serious injuries.
This isn't the first time a car has crashed into a home along Providence Rd. In June of 2021, a car crashed into a home three houses down from Thursday morning's crash. That incident was also caused by a car crash along the road.
