Just before 3 a.m., the car ran up the front lawn of a house in the 2400 block of Colburn Avenue in the Old Brooklyn area of the city, crashing onto the front steps and the into the porch area of the home. Police say that three men fled the scene. One injury was reported, but at this time, police are unsure of who the injured person is.

City crews had to shore up the house before the car could be removed. The car hit the home in such a way that they feared the house would collapse once it was moved.
