UPDATE: Car Smashes into Livermore Home; No Alcohol, Drugs Involved

No arrests and no injuries, according to officials.

Preliminary investigations show no drugs or alcohol were involved when a car smashed into the front of a home at Jensen Street and Princeton Way Tuesday night, according to the Livermore Police Department.

The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department reported no injuries in the accident, initially called in at 5:38 p.m.

The vehicle caused major damage to the exterior and kitchen of the house, as well as a water leak, officials said. 

No one was home at the time, and the building is not habitable.

Details are not yet released on the driver or what caused the collision, police said. No arrests were made.

Drivers need to slow down, they drive way too fast...

This is my father's house. Praise God he was with us eating dinner instead of at his kitchen table. Thank you City of Livermore PD.FD and CIty Inspector John for quick response and for your kindness. We are so grateful for this community. Now to wrangle with insurance companies and contractors to get him back into his nest.

No drugs or alcohol involved. Just a female driver. :)

Michelle, if you need a contractor that works with the insurance companies let me know. I would be more than happy to help if I can. If you would like more information please feel free to contact me and I will be right out. I hope that all is well and everyone is safe.

My bet...old person who will say they mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake. I am 70, yet I still know the difference.

Glad nobody was hurt. Hopefully this ends somebody's driving career before somebody DOES get hurt.
