BAKER - Two people are in the hospital Wednesday morning after a car plowed into a home in Baker.
Baker Police responded to the call at the 3600 block of Lavey Ln. shortly after 4 a.m. Police say the vehicle was possibly traveling at a high rate of speed when it hit a telephone pole, skidded across three front yards before crashing into a bedroom.
Police say the residents inside the home were not physically injured, but were shaken up. Residents tell WBRZ News 2 that the car missed the bedroom where their child was sleeping by just five feet.
