BATON ROUGE - Officials say a vehicle plowed through a home in a residential area off Burbank Drive, early Wednesday morning. 

According to representatives with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office (EBRSO) and St. George Fire, a person behind the wheel of a white Chevrolet Traverse hit a residence in the 700 block of Fountain View Drive around 7 a.m.

The vehicle reportedly went through the home's bedroom while three residents were on the premises. None of the three were wounded.

But officials say the driver was entrapped and had to be extracted from their vehicle by fire personnel.

Additionally, though the driver initially stated that they did not need medical treatment, this was later negated when the driver required treatment and was taken to a medical facility by EMS.   

At this time, the driver's condition is unknown.

A dog belonging to the home's occupants was also reportedly injured during the collision. The animal was taken to a local veterinary clinic for treatment and is expected to survive.

A second pet dog fled the scene of the incident, but was recovered as first responders began to leave the area. 

Officials say the Fountain View Drive home is occupied by four residents, and as their home is now unlivable, the four are being assisted by the Red Cross.
