Those first on the scene found a Chevy Suburban, traveling East bound on Nicholson, veered off the street and went head on through a two story duplex structure on the corner of Prout and Nicholson Streets. Six people were inside the house at the time of the accident.

A 19-year-old man was in the basement at the time and was able to get himself out. Three other people were on the first floor, including a 43-year-old woman who was hit by flying debris. She was transported for observation of what was a minor injury. Two others on the first floor were not injured.

The 35-year-old driver of the SUV, however, suffered serious injuries and was medevaced to a nearby hospital for further treatment of traumatic wounds. His condition was last listed as stable. MPD was investigating the cause of the crash..

Fair guess the idiot driver was likely also yammering away on a cell phone at the time. Screw human lives as long as the yuppies can stay connected to their toys.
