MAPLE HEIGHTS, Ohio
Police say a car plowed into a suburban Cleveland home and damaged a staircase, temporarily trapping two residents on the upper level of the building.
They weren't hurt. The driver who lost control and sped into the home was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
It wasn't immediately clear whether drugs or alcohol were considered factors in the crash.
WJW-TV in Cleveland reports two houses nearby were evacuated for hours until a resulting gas leak could be addressed.
