GIRARD, Ohio (WYTV) – Girard Police are investigating after a car with a child inside crashed into a house.

The accident happened about 11:15 p.m. Monday in the 200 block of Davis Street.

Ron Lewis said he saw the car speed past him and go through a stop sign.

“I watched it, and all of a sudden, it veered off toward the houses. I thought it was going into the driveway real fast, then it hit the house,” Lewis said.

Neighbors said they felt the impact of the crash.

When police arrived, no one was in the Pontiac that had crashed into the house. The driver and her daughter were found at a home several houses down from the scene of the crash.

Police said the woman driving the vehicle didn’t see to be in the right state of mind. She and her 6-year-old daughter were taken to the hospital for an evaluation.

A police report says it appears that the driver had a medical issue before the crash. Family members told police that she is diabetic and her blood sugar levels may have been off before the crash.

Nobody was inside the house at the time of the crash.
