It is not unusual for a car to be parked in a garage, but the way a car ended up in a garage on Colonial Trace Wednesday night was anything but normal.
Frankfort Police Capt. Robert Warfel said an officer was driving on Schenkel Lane, near Imperial Drive, around 11:30 p.m. when he passed a car that was speeding approximately 13 mph over the 35 mph limit.
The officer turned around to conduct a traffic stop, Warfel said, but by the time he caught up with the speeding car, the driver had allegedly turned onto Colonial Trace and crashed into a house.
The car left the road and drove through a front wall before coming to a stop in the home’s garage.
As the officer approached the crash, the driver and passenger were walking out from the rubble.
The 20-year-old driver is about seven months pregnant, Warfel said. She was taken to the hospital as a precaution. The passenger — a 25-year-old man — refused treatment.
Three people were inside the home when the crash occurred. Warfel was unsure of their ages, but said none of them were injured.
“They were allowed to stay in the home,” Warfel said.
The officer said neither the driver nor the passenger appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
“However, our officer does plan on pursuing traffic charges,” Warfel said.
The driver allegedly told officers that her accelerator got stuck and the car’s brakes weren’t working.
“Of course, all that is still under investigation,” Warfel said.
