Local officials are investigating a car crash involving a car crashing into a home in Holley, New York. When police arrived to the scene, they found the car already inside the home. Officers had to assist the passengers out, as the vehicle had struck a gas meter and gas was leaking onto the air. The car was being driven by a 26-year-old female driver and occupied by a 6-year-old and a 6-month-old child. The female driver sustained personal injuries to her head, back and leg. The 6-month-old was placed in pediatric intensive care and sustained personal injuries to the head and leg. The 6-month-old infant was treated and released. According to officials, the vehicle went off the roadway, struck a power pole and then struck the home. Car crashes can be extremely harmful and sometimes fatal. It is important during this time of year, when weather conditions are not favorable for driving, for drivers to stay alert and keep their focus on the road. Hopefully, both children were properly retrained in the vehicle – the toddler in a car seat and the 6-year-old also properly retrained inside the vehicle depending upon the child’s height and weight.
