Police are investigating a late-night traffic crash that heavily damaged a 114-year-old home in the 800 block of West Wooster Street.
According to Maj. Tony Hetrick of BG Police, at 11:16 p.m. Eleesha Long, 21, Bowling Green, was westbound on West Wooster when she failed to negotiate the turn and drove over the curb and into the corner of the covered front porch of 804 W. Wooster. PHOTO BLOG
The impact caused a portion of the porch’s roof to collapse. Significant damage to wood and brick work was also evident, and deep ruts could be seen in the yard.
Long was taken to Wood County Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Hetrick said this morning that, while the incident is still under investigation, drugs or alcohol are suspected in the case.
The two-story home, situated at the junction of Haskins Road and West Wooster Street, was built in 1900, according to the Wood County Auditor’s website, and remodeled in 1994.
Hetrick could not provide a full estimate of the damage, but said that it would run into the thousands of dollars.
“It was heavily damaged,” he said.
