FARGO — Police say the driver of a car that crashed through the wall of a north Fargo home early today was hospitalized with a head injury and will likely face multiple charges.

According to Sgt. Jared Crane:

The crash was reported at 1:24 a.m. at 3105 9½ St. N.

A Ford Taurus was traveling northbound at a high rate of speed on 10th Street North approaching the intersection of 31st Avenue when the driver lost control, skidded across the boulevard and crashed through a fence and into the house, causing extensive damage to both the home and vehicle.

Two residents who were home at the time weren’t injured when the car crashed into their living room area, snapping a gas line.

The driver ran from the scene, Crane said. Officers found him near Eighth Street North and 31st Avenue.

He sustained a head injury and was in and out of consciousness before being taken to Sanford Medical Center, Crane said, adding it’s unknown if his injury is life-threatening.

Alcohol appeared to be a factor in the incident, and the driver will likely face multiple charges, he said.
