Car slams into house in Hurst

A motorist suspected of driving while intoxicated apparently lost control of his car and smashed into a home in Hurst.

A motorist was injured early this morning when he crashed through a brick wall and into a home in the 2600 block of Bent Ridge Drive in Hurst, police said in a news release.

The 27-year-old North Richland Hills driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital, according to police.

Police said the motorist was traveling east in the 700 block of Martin Road about 4:30 a.m. in a 2002 Ford four-door sedan. He failed to stop at the intersection of Martin Road and Mid-Cities Boulevard, then crossed three lanes, hit the median, crossed three more lanes, hit the curb, crashed through the brick wall and slammed into the breakfast nook of the home on Bent Ridge Drive.

The residents were sleeping on the other side of the house at the time and were uninjured, Assistant Police Chief Richard Winstanley said in the release.

The driver is being investigated for possibly driving while intoxicated, he said.
