Sheriff: Teen crashes into Lockport home after road rage incident


LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) — Sunday night in Lockport, a teen driver crashed into a home after authorities say he was involved in a road rage incident.

Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene on Tonawanda Creek Road around 8:17 p.m.

There, they say the 17-year-old driver was headed east when he lost control while speeding around a curve. The vehicle ended up striking a guardrail, a tree and a fire hydrant before hitting the house.

Luckily, no one was injured when the vehicle came to a rest inside a first-floor bedroom. As of Monday morning, there’s no estimate on the damage, but the home’s residents have been displaced until repairs can be made.

The teen, who was not named, has been charged with reckless driving and multiple other vehicle and traffic law violations.
