SUV crashes into Miami home

Driver taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital

MIAMI – An SUV crashed into a house Thursday night in Miami, sending the driver to a hospital.

The SUV crashed into a house near Northwest 12th Avenue and Northwest 33rd Street.

"We found the driver of this SUV somewhat disoriented, confused, acting a little erratically," Miami Department of Fire-Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll said.

The driver of the SUV was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in serious condition. 

Paramedics checked on an 80-year-old woman and her nephew, who live in the home. They were in another part of the house and were not struck.

"The concern is that if we move that vehicle out, it may cause further damage or even collapse that area of the house," Carroll said.

Carroll said the incident could have been much worse.
