Two people escaped serious injury in south Perry early Thursday when the car they were traveling in left the roadway, hurtled into a house and came to rest standing upright on its rear bumper.
The circumstances of the 12:30 a.m. crash are unknown at this hour, but the vehicle was apparently traveling westbound on Iowa Street at a high rate of speed and ran the T-intersection at Fifth Street, where it was launched from the roadway and into the house at 715 Fifth St.
The occupants of the vehicle sustained lacerations to their faces and heads, according to public safety radio traffic. Law enforcement is testing the sobriety of the juvenile driver at this hour.
The front of the house sustained significant damage, but no occupants were injured. The property is owned by Ronald and Tammy Zuber, according to county records.
The Perry Police Department, Perry First Responders, Perry Volunteer Fire Department, Dallas County Sheriff’s office and Dallas County EMS responded.
