Driver Sought After Causing Other Car To Crash Into Homestead Home

HOMESTEAD (KDKA) – Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who sent a vehicle crashing into a home in Homestead Tuesday morning.

Homestead police say the driver and three passengers were riding in their car when they were struck by another vehicle near West Street

The car went out of control and slammed into the front door of a house nearby on West 11th Street.

Henry Little was working as a crossing guard a block away.

“I heard a loud crash of cars hitting and seconds after that, I heard a big boom,” Little said.

“We don’t know exactly what happened, but the vehicle that went into the building continued through, was struck by a silver, four-door Toyota Corolla from witness accounts,” Homestead Police Chief Jeffrey DeSimone said.

Several people were inside the home when the crash happened. The crash left a huge hole in the apartment. Their smashed front door was nearby on the ground.

“There are apartments in there, people were there, nobody was injured. One young female was injured in the car, she had what appeared to be a minor leg injury. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment,” Chief DeSimone said.

Police believe the driver was transporting several teenagers to school and also had a 3-year-old passenger in the vehicle.

Little walked down to the scene of the accident and had a brief conversation with the driver.

“That she might be going to jail because she didn’t have a license,” Little said.

So far, Homestead police aren’t saying if charges will be filed. They’re also looking for a silver, four-door Toyota Corolla that slowed down and then drove away.
