18-Year-Old Distracted By Vaping Slams Honda Accord Into House


Police in Pinal County, Arizona have charged an 18-year-old driver with a series of offenses after he crashed a Honda Accord into the front of a home.

The incident happened in the early hours of Tuesday morning and when authorities arrived on the scene, the driver showed no signs of impairment that could explain the crash. However, the 18-year-old did admit to looking down at a smoking vape pen just before the crash.

A video taken after the incident shows the Accord being pulled out from the front of the brick house. While the homeowner and two children were inside at the time of the crash, none were injured. The driver and his 19-year-old passenger were also unharmed.

Unsurprisingly, the damage sustained to the front of the Accord is extensive and the driver’s side airbag was deployed. Thus, there’s a chance it may be deemed a write-off.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office says that the driver has been charged for speeding, reckless driving, criminal damage, and endangerment.

“Folks, we wish reminders like these weren’t needed, but please watch your speed through neighborhoods, and keep your eyes on the road,” Sheriff Mark Lamb wrote on Facebook.

This is far from the first time a car has crashed into a house and we guess it won’t be the last. Back in May, a similar crash made headlines after a Chevrolet Malibu hit a pine tree, flipped end-over-end down a grass embankment and wedged itself in the roof of a home.
