Vehicle slams into Alexandria-area house

Monday - 11/18/2013, 10:09am  ET

WASHINGTON - A young driver plowed her vehicle into a Fairfax County house early Monday morning.

A young woman lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a house located at 6324 Rose Hill Drive in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County at about 5 a.m. The vehicle slammed into the right side of the residence, causing damage in at least one room.

No one sustained injuries in the crash. Speed was a factor in the crash, although officials have not yet said how fast she drove at the time of the crash.

The driver did not live in the residence she struck, officials say. She received a ticket for driving too fast in slippery conditions caused by overnight rain.

The residence is inhabitable and its owners will continue to live in it as insurance inspectors come and the repair process gets started.

The estimated cost of damage the crash caused is not yet clear.

The Alexandria incident is the second vehicle-into-house crash in Northern Virginia in two days. On Sunday, a vehicle crashed into a Nokesville, Va., home at about 1 a.m., according to Fox 5. It was the second time a car crashed into the residence after the same thing happened three years prior.

No one sustained injuries in the Sunday crash, according to Fox 5.
