    MENOMONEE FALLS, Wisconsin (WDJT) — The Menomonee Falls Fire Department announced that a car drove off the road, and into a home near Main and Rock Pointe in Menomonee Falls on Sunday, Dec. 12

Authorities did not describe the circumstances behind how the car went off-road into a home but reported that the car struck a gas meter attached to the home.

Thankfully, officials did not report any injuries in the home as a result of the crash.

Records indicate the driver of the car was transported to an area hospital.
