Jeep crashes into Lewiston home

LEWISTON – A vehicle struck a house Monday morning on Saunders Settlement Road. The 24-year-old driver told State Police she fell asleep behind the wheel.

The crash into the front of a home at 1820 Saunders Settlement, just west of Tuscarora Road, happened just after 8 a.m., State Police said.

The driver of the Jeep Liberty, who was alone in the vehicle, was taken to Mount St. Mary’s Hospital for evaluation.

The impact damaged the home’s exterior wall to the basement. Town building officials were being called to examine the structure. There was no evidence that alcohol or drug use was a factor, State Police said.
