A driver veered off Old William Penn Highway and crashed into two homes Sunday afternoon in Wilkins, damaging one house enough that officials temporarily declared it off-limits until repairs can be made, authorities said.

The vehicle went off-road shortly after 1 p.m., according to Allegheny County 911 supervisors. Wilkins police said it struck two homes, and one of them was declared unsafe, displacing one family.

The driver, a 32-year-old man whose name police did not release, did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol, but police said they requested a blood test to determine if prescription drugs were involved. No one was injured and no one was charged Sunday.
