A Grand Junction High School Student looses control of his car and runs into the front of house this afternoon. The crash happened a little before three o'clock on North First Street in Grand Junction. According to Police Officer Martin Donahue.

He veered off the road and hit the curb, then panicked and accelerated causing him to hit a mail box and finally ending up in a house. The boy was wearing his seatbelt and no one was injured. The owner of the home was at work during the time of the crash, but couldn't believe her eyes when she saw her house. The owner's dog was inside the house at the time of the crash but wasn't hurt. The 16–year–old driver was ticketed for careless driving.
