Driver Arrested After Driving Into House

05-18-06 - A car slammed into a house north of Ada Wednesday night, injuring two people inside, and Thursday an arrest was made. The accident happened at the intersection of CR 3570 and CR 1510 north of Ada.

Troopers say a car lost control and ran off the road, plowing into the southeast side of a house. Two people were asleep inside the home and were hit by the car. One was Mediflight-ed to Oklahoma City and the other was transported to Valley View Regional Hospital in Ada.

The driver of the car left the scene, but Thursday Pontotoc County Deputies spotted the car and arrested the 21-year-old August James Peters of Pleasanton, Texas for leaving the scene of an accident.
