It happened near Tamarack and Crosby in the city’s northwest side at around 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

Witnesses say the SUV was speeding and lost control.  That’s when it crashed into some other cars and went airborne, hitting a nearby home in the process.

A woman who was on the porch at the time of the accident was injured when some debris hit her.  She was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the SUV was also hospitalized.  Once he’s released, he will face several charges, including OWI Causing Injury.
