Car Drives into House in Mansfield

As I was driving to my Dr. appointment in Mansfield this afternoon around 1pm, I heard over the Police scanner that a car had just crashed into a house, at 581 Burns Street.

I thought, “Hmmmm, do I have enough time to check it out?” Then the scanner boomed out, “Driver is running from the crash!” Then a few seconds later, “Driver just ran back to the crash and removed his temporary tags and is once again running away.”

Ok! I thought, “Well, I will just have to go get a few pictures, I still have a few minutes before my appointment.”

When I pulled up to the scene and saw this I thought, “Hey! You can’t park there!”

A witness at the scene told me it was unbelievable, why would you run back to your car to get the temporary tags?

The owner of the house had bought it to remodel it. He said he had already fixed the porch roof, but after all, his last name is “Murphy” like in “Murphy’s Law,” which is an old adage or epigram that is typically stated as: "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."

No injuries were reported.

Mansfield Police Division is investigating but hasn’t released any information as of yet.
