RIVERSIDE, Ohio (WDTN) – A driver was arrested Saturday morning after police say he lost control of his car and crashed into a house.

The crash was reported just after 9:30 a.m. at 5039 Denny Lane. A witness told 2 NEWS the driver was speeding as he came down the street and missed a turn. The car ended up partially in the laundry room. Crews were called to shut off the gas and water lines.

The family was not home at the time of the crash, but returned a short time later. We’re told three adults and three kids live there.

Neighbors say the driver also lives in the neighborhood.

Police performed a sobriety test on the driver at the scene and he was arrested under suspicion of OVI.
