Jeep lands near Mt. Pleasant house after collision

State police are investigating a two-vehicle crash Friday in which one vehicle nearly struck a Mt. Pleasant Township home.

The driver of a Jeep Liberty was taken to Excela Health Frick Hospital for treatment of minor injuries at about 1:10 p.m. after leaving Bridgeport Street and driving into shrubs at a nearby home. The Jeep appeared to have stopped inches from the structure. Investigators did not release the driver’s identity.

No one was at home at the time.

Christopher Lewis said he was backing onto Bridgeport Street in a Ford Explorer when the Jeep struck the back of his vehicle as it headed toward the house.

Lewis, whose age and address were not available, was not injured.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
