Police say an SUV smashed into a Holladay house on Thanksgiving night, rendering it "unlivable."
Nobody in the house was hurt and the driver was treated at the scene for minor injuries. Three passengers in the car were not injured.
Police say a 44-year-old man took the Interstate 215 exit for 4500 South and for an undetermined reason did not stop at a stop sign, traveling through an intersection and into a house. Unified Police Department spokesman Justin Hoyal said a family was present in the home but could not confirm the number of people residing there.
"There’s significant damage to the home to where it’s unlivable," Hoyal said. He said a watch commander at the scene reported that the same house had been hit by a car before, but "it’s been years."
The Tribune will provide details as they become available.
