One woman was injured Thursday when a car struck a home in Mt. Pleasant on Feb. 21, 2019.

A woman was injured Thursday when her sport utility vehicle struck a house in Mt. Pleasant.

The owners of the home at 201 S. Diamond St. — Billie and Michael DiPasquale — said that the driver was traveling north when the vehicle hit a car in front of Diamond Self-Storage Units and a pickup truck before going off the road and onto the storage unit facility’s driveway. The driver’s white Subaru Outback plowed through a plastic fence and went airborne before hitting the side of the DiPasquale house.

The crash occurred just after 4 p.m., dispatchers said. Borough patrolman Tim Ferree indicated that the victim, who was not identified, may have suffered an undisclosed medical emergency.

The DiPasquales said “the whole house shook.”

“She hit our house and then the (car) dropped down,” Michael DiPasquale said.

He said there was some interior damage where the front end of the car hit and bricks were smashed on the outside. Shrubbery also was damaged.

The identity of the driver was not released, but she was taken by ambulance to Excela Frick Hospital in Mt. Pleasant, where she was airlifted to an undisclosed Pittsburgh hospital, Ferree said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
