SUV Slams into Grand Junction Home, Young Girl Pinned Inside
A driver overshoots an intersection and ends up plowing into a Grand Junction home, narrowly missing a family inside. It all happened Wednesday afternoon around 3:30 on Melody Lane behind the North Avenue Walmart.
Police say they're investigating why SUV's driver was not able to stop when he was leaving the store's parking lot.
A young girl was partially pinned in the house by debris, but a washer and dryer in the front part of the house took the brunt of the impact and stopped the vehicle.
The homeowners were in the process of remodeling their home at the time of the crash.
Police say the driver is looking at reckless driving charges. There is no word on if alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash.
