MOUNT VERNON - A man crashed into a house after he was shot in the back of the head while driving in Mount Vernon Friday night.

Witnesses say the 24-year-old driver of a white Dodge Challenger lost control of his vehicle at around 10 p.m., jumped the curb and crashed into a home at 160 South 10th Ave.
