WPD: Woman crashed car into side of Wilmington house

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police say a woman who was speeding lost control of her car, slamming into the side of a house this morning.

Police say it happened in the 100 block of Covil Avenue just before 11 a.m. They say witnesses told them they noticed the woman driving too fast before she took out a median sign near Market Street, then veering off the road and into the side of the home.

No one was inside the house at the time because police say it was undergoing renovations. The driver was cited for careless and reckless driving after one of her passengers was taken to the hospital for injuries.
