Drunk driver rams into Chardon house where young boy normally sleeps

CHARDON, Ohio - Normally, at 4:30 a.m., the young boy who lives at 502 Crocker Boulevard would have been asleep in the front bedroom of the house.  

But when a 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX rammed into the house early Tuesday morning, the boy was with his mom in another room.

Chardon police say he and his family were lucky no one was hurt.

Though the damage to the house is still being determined, the driver’s car was capable of hitting the road again.

But not for long.

Police spotted the heavily-damaged car getting on South Hambden Street from Irma Drive on the way to Chardon Windsor Road and noticed the driver was having a hard time staying in control.

With the help of a Geauga Park Ranger, the driver was arrested and charged with “operating a motor vehicle while under the influence.”

Other charges are pending.
