AKRON, Ohio — The front of an Akron house was heavily damaged on Thursday after a Jeep hit a pole and traveled through the front yard of a home on Hawk Avenue, according to officers at the scene.
Just before 3 a.m., a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk was traveling southbound at a high rate of speed on Hawk Avenue from Eastgate when it hit a utility pole and entered the front yard.
The Jeep continued through a front yard and hit a raised driveway and launched into the air, crashing into the second story gutter before it fell through the front porch and onto its roof in the driveway of another house, according to neighbors and police who spoke to News 5's Mike Vielhaber.
Akron police said before the vehicle struck the front porch of the home, the occupants of the vehicle, a 25-year-old male and a 17-year-old male, were ejected from the sunroof.
The teen was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The condition of the adult male is unknown, police said.
The homeowner, Sandy Kirby, was inside the home during the crash. She was not injured.
Officers recovered at least four bottles of promethazine syrup at the crash site and nearly 200 grams of marijuana was found inside the vehicle.
