CORPUS CHRISTI -

Emergency teams responded to the 1800 block of Lipan Street after a vehicle collided with part of a property.

Crews on scene told KRIS 6 News that a driver was headed along the roadway at a high rate of speed when they apparently collided with a telephone pole, causing damage.

Thereafter, the vehicle headed off the road and into a nearby yard, colliding with a portion of the building's porch. It appeared that the vehicle did not hit the building itself.

At least one person was reportedly in the home at the time, but thankfully, was not injured.

The driver was alone in the vehicle and was transported to a local hospital. The full extent of their injuries was not known at time of writing.

AEP crews were called to repair damage to the telephone pole, and several nearby homes were reportedly without power as a result of the accident.

Investigators were still investigating the cause of the accident. This story is developing, we will provide updates as soon as they become available.
