FOWLER TWP., Ohio (WKBN) — A car hit a house in Fowler Twp. early Sunday morning.

It happened on Wilson Sharpsville Road, shortly before 1 a.m.

The homeowner was inside when it happened and called 911.

The damage left a hole over five feet wide in the house.

National Fire Repair was called out to assist and the hole has since been boarded up.

One person was taken to Trumbull Memorial hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

“Don’t take any moments with your people for granted because you never know. Ten feet to the right and we could have been talking about a whole other story. This could have been an obituary rather than a news story,” said John Biles, who is the son of the homeowner.

John’s mother was home at the time of the accident. The car crashed into her bathroom, right next to her bedroom.

The house is 150 years old and it suffered significant damage.

The family is working on getting an estimate this week.
