Family displaced after vehicle crashes into home
Four Denver adults have been displaced from their home after a vehicle collided into it Saturday morning.
According to the State Police at Bowmansville, Scott Gassenmeyer, 19, of West Chester, was traveling on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in the eastbound lane shortly after 1 a.m. when he lost control of his vehicle and left the roadway, traveling down an embankment and striking a house in the 1300 block of Douglas Drive, which is approximately 100 feet south of the turnpike.
After striking the home, police say Gassenmeyer left the area but was located back at the accident scene at approximately 3:30 a.m. The crash involved minor injuries and charges against Gassenmeyer are pending.
American Red Cross volunteers are assisting the residents of the home. The Red Cross assisted the family with food and shelter and will follow-up to determine any additional disaster needs.
