INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — An east side home suffered significant damage after a car drove into it around 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said they received a call about a car hitting a house on Commodore Drive, just northeast of 21st Street and Arlington Avenue.

When they arrived, the car was gone, but the damage was clear. There was structural damage to the home, with a hole about 10 feet wide in the front of the home.

Indianapolis Fire Department's Collapse Rescue Team was called out to assess the home's damage. They shored up the home because the roof was beginning to cave in. Crews were concerned about a possible collapse.
