A man overdosing on drugs crashed into a Bucks County house and injured the homeowner while the homeowner’s dog was struck and killed by another vehicle that fled the scene, according to police.
Police say the suspect was driving a 2016 Honda on Goldenridge Drive in Levittown shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday when he overdosed on an unknown substance and lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle crossed over a field and crashed into the back of a home on Gun Road.
Two people were inside the home at the time. A male resident who was sitting near the doorway was hit in the head by one of the glass doors during the crash. He was taken to the hospital and treated for a serious head laceration.
