HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

An SUV careened through the garage of a home off Laburnum Avenue in Henrico, after losing control and crossing oncoming traffic. The crash sent one person to the hospital.

The crash happened at a home near South Laburnum Avenue and East Caryhurst Road, south of Nine Mile Road. Firefighters say the woman driving the car was heading south on Laburnum Avenue when she lost control and rode over the grassy median, across oncoming northbound lanes. The SUV plowed over two lawns into the garage.

"It entered the garage, and the steps going up from the garage to the door to the house, and it was up in there," said neighbor Antoinette Dickerson.

The driver was rushed to the hospital with minor injuries. The vehicle took out both doors to the garage and some of the brick siding of the house.

The house was empty at the time. No word yet on what caused the driver to lose control or any if any charges are pending.
