Car slams into York County home

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York County family got a scary wake up call Thursday morning when a car slammed into their home.

Spring Garden Township police said 57-year-old Salvatore Giuffrida lost control of a vehicle and struck the home in the 1400 block of S. George Street just after 2 a.m.

Giuffrida, of Red Lion, was transported to York Hospital.

Jen O'Neill lives in the home and described the terrifying ordeal.

"I heard this loud rumbling and the whole house shook and then, 'boom!'" she said. "It sounded like a bomb went off and really looks like one did, too."

No one was hurt. The family of four will have to find somewhere to stay until repairs can be made to the home.

The accident is under investigation and alcohol is believed to be a factor, police said.
