Man who slammed car into home charged with DWI, reckless driving


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A man who police say slammed his car into a Wilmington home early Saturday now faces charges for DWI and reckless driving.

The crash happened shortly after midnight Saturday at the home at 6712 Yarmouth Way. Police say when they got to the scene, they discovered a black Ford Mustang had smashed into the back of the home where people were inside.

Police say the Mustang went airborne before crashing into two fences, then hitting the home, and finally landing in a neighbor's yard after hitting another fence.

The driver, Adam Matthew Battersea Molto, was taken to the hospital for minor injuries, along with the passenger in his car. Molto is charged with DWI and careless and reckless driving.

Police say the home has been hit once before.
