KANNAPOLIS ó A car crashed into a house on Dale Earnhardt Boulevard early Thursday morning after the driver skidded on ice on the road, Kannapolis police said.
The driver, Servando Rosario Loreto, 39, of 2852 Davidson Hwy., Concord, was traveling north on Dale Earnhardt Boulevard when he ran over some ice in the roadway and lost control of the 1996 Saturn he was driving. The incident occurred shortly before 1:30 a.m.
Loreto ran off the side of the road and struck the right front of the house, damaging the foundation and destroying the front steps. The vehicle continued through the yard, struck a trash can and came to rest in the roadway 92 feet away from where it initially struck the house.
His passenger, Javier Rodriguez, 24, was not injured
It does not appear that alcohol was a factor. The driver was not injured.
The homeowner was at the residence, but did not report any injuries. The home sustained an estimated $5,000 in damages. The car had about $3,500 in damages.
Loreto was charged with not having a driverís license and driving too fast for conditions, the report said.
An accident report lists the occupant of the home as Gina Frey. An attempt to reach Frey was unsuccessful.
