Car crashes through house, police looking for driver

COLUMBUS (WCMH)- Homeowners in southeast Columbus tell us a car containing an adult male and a 14-year-old girl slammed through a wall and into their bedroom.

This happened around 12:30 a.m. on Penfield Drive.

William Rippey says the car hit his house and an adult male ran. The teen apparently then took the wheel and attempted to escape.

Rippey says he was able to block her in until police arrived and handcuffed her.

CPD would not confirm any arrests were made. Officers did tell NBC 4 they responded to a car versus a house.

Police say they are looking a male, unknown age or race, wearing a black coat and hat. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
