Stuck pedal forces driver to execute stop sign as SUV enters house, police say

IDAHO FALLS — A woman was taken to hospital with minor injuries after an SUV crashed into a home Thursday night.

It happened at the intersection of Lomax Street and Wabash Avenue around 5:50 p.m.

According to Idaho Falls police spokeswoman Jessica Clements, the driver of a Chrysler Town and Country van was traveling south on Wabash Avenue when an object stuck on the gas pedal. This prevented the driver from stopping at the intersection.

“The van turned around and the climber continued down the sidewalk and into a house,” Clements says.

The foundations and exterior of the house in the 600 block of Lomax Street were extensively damaged. A person inside the room opposite the wall that was hit is OK.

Both drivers were slightly injured. Clements says the driver of the minivan was cited for not stopping at a stop sign and reminds everyone to keep the area around the vehicle’s pedals clear.
