July 6, 2018 GMT

YORK, Pa. (AP) — Police say a driver fleeing police crashed into a Pennsylvania home, damaging it badly.

The York Dispatch reports state police tried to stop a Mini Cooper travelling 80 mph in a 55 mph zone on Interstate 83 near Manchester Township on July 4th. Police say the driver didn’t stop and took an exit.

Authorities say the vehicle passed other cars before the driver lost control and struck a brick home.


The two people inside the home at the time of the crash weren’t hurt.

Police arrested 28-year-old Kameron Smith, of Manchester Township, and charged him with multiple offenses including DUI and attempting to elude police.

Officials say Smith said he wasn’t trying to flee police and that his shoe became “stuck on the accelerator.” He is being held on $2,500 bail in York County prison.
