LAKE RIDGE, Va. – At 12:42am Friday, fire and rescue units responded to a report of a vehicle into a home 11972 Cotton Mill Drive in Lake Ridge. The first arriving fire engine reported that one vehicle was into the corner of the garage, and it appeared the garage slightly collapsed and was resting on the car.
All occupants of the house were uninjured. According to witnesses, the occupants of the vehicle fled immediately after the accident. There was no structural damage to the livable portion of the house. Once it was determined that there was not a life safety hazard, members from OWL Volunteer Fire Department Collapse Rescue Team put a temporary shore in place so the vehicle could be removed by a wrecker. Once the vehicle was removed, a permanent shore was put in place and the scene was turned over to the Building Inspector and Occupants. No occupants were displaced and damage is estimated at $50,000.
Units from the OWL Volunteer Fire Department, Dale City Volunteer Fire Department, Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue and Prince William County Police responded to the scene.
