Car runs into house in south Charlotte

Three occupants of a house escaped injury early Thursday when a car slammed into the residence, police say.

The incident left several hundred residents without electricity for a few hours.

Police say the crash was reported about 2:15 a.m. on Londonderry Road. That is off Tyvola Road.

Investigators say the driver apparently lost control of the car and slammed into a power pole before hitting the house. The driver was not seriously injured, police say.

Charges are pending in the case, according to police.
