The driver of a 1997 Lexus sedan said she was having trouble with the car right before it crashed into a house Saturday night, and that it swerved off the road into the house in the 14800 block of NE 61st Way, Redmond Police spokesman Jim Bove told The Seattle Times.
She wasn't seriously hurt, and the house, which caught fire, was vacant. Police don’t believe alcohol was an issue in the accident, Bove said.
Bellevue firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire at a home just north of Bellevue Golf Course after a car ran off the road and crashed into it Saturday night, Q13 News and other television stations are reporting.
The occupants of the car apparently escaped unharmed, and the house, in the 14800 block of NE 61st Way of Redmond, appeared to be vacant, according to Q13. The car may have hit a gas line and sparked the fire and fully engulfed the structure at about 8 p.m.
