SUV slams into Chester condo

Posted: Updated:

Police are investigating a crash in which an SUV slammed into a condo in Chester.

Police say a woman in her 50s was coming out of a driveway down the street, lost control, went down a hill, hit a tree and landed in the home on Whispering Hills Drive.

As a precaution, a number of attached townhomes were evacuated and the gas and electric turned off.

The condo owner wasn't home at the time of the accident.

Investigators say the driver was not injured but was shaken up. They are looking into whether there were any mechanical issues with the car.
