It was a pretty close call for the driver of a Dodge Durango who crashed into a house in in Briargate late Friday night and ran over the gas meter.
The Colorado Springs Police Department reports that the driver of the Durango was headed south on Wimbleton Ct. at around 11:00 p.m. when they ran a stop sign at the intersection with Dynamic Drive.
The SUV was struck by a Subaru that was headed east on Dynamic and following the collision, drove off the road into the side of the house. The vehicle ran over a gas meter, through a fence and came to rest partially in the back yard.
The house was evacuated while utility workers shut off the gas. Police don't suspect drugs or alcohol are involved. No injuries were reported.
