Charleston man faces charges after vehicle crashes into house
CHARLESTON, Mo. — A Charleston man faces charges after he allegedly drove his vehicle into a house Friday in Charleston.
At 3:20 p.m. Friday, the Charleston Department of Public Safety responded to a report of a motor vehicle striking a residence at the intersection of Commercial and 13th streets, according to Police Chief Robert Hearnes.
Investigating officers found reason to believe that the driver of the vehicle, Kevin Anderson, 51, of Charleston, was intoxicated, and he was arrested, Hearnes said.
Two passengers in the vehicle, as well as an occupant of the residence, were injured as well. All parties were transported to an area hospital for treatment, Hearnes said.
“During the course of the investigation, it was determined that Anderson did not have permission to have the vehicle,” Hearnes said. “He was also operating the vehicle at a high rate of speed in a residential area.”
Anderson is currently being held in the Mississippi County Jail on charges of auto theft, assault, property damage, driving while intoxicated and driving while revoked with a bond of $75,000. Additional charges are possible.
