Driver crashes into Lebanon residence

A car crashed into a home in Lebanon Monday evening, Nov. 12, Lebanon Police said. 

According to an LPD statement, at 6:25 p.m. Monday officers responded to a report that a vehicle had crashed into a residence in the 3200 block of Joseph Street.  LPD personnel arrived and determined that the vehicle had crashed into a residence through the front living room, and that six residents, who were inside of the residence during the crash, were uninjured.  

According to responding officers, at least three residents were inside of the living room when the vehicle crashed through the wall.  

The driver of the vehicle, 78-year old Vesta Desplancke of Lebanon, was not injured.

Prior to the vehicle’s collision with the residence, it had collided with a parked car, a road sign, a road block metal pole, fencing, and a bush.  It is estimated that several thousand dollars of damage occurred, according to LPD. 

Investigating officers determined there were no signs of impairment from the driver, and the crash may have been due to a medical issue; no citations have been issued at this time. 

LPD said the investigating officer will be submitting paperwork to DMV requesting a re-test of Desplancke’s driving privileges.

The vehicle was towed from the scene.
