Car Crashes Into Home on Pentland Ave.

Today at about 3:45 p.m. an elderly woman crashed into a home on Pentland Avenue in Fort Thomas.

According to witnesses on the scene, speed was a factor in the crash. The driver, according to witnesses also, had a compound fracture of her leg and was taken to Christ Hospital. No one else was hurt and police are currently on scene.

It's not yet clear if charges will be filed. Fort Thomas Matters will update the story.


  1. Wow... sad to see. My parents had that house built and I spent the first 18 years of my life in that house before going off to college.

  2. This is getting ridiculous. Do we need to have another person die because speeds are ignored? No one follows the posted 25 mph speed limits in the Grand and Highland Avenue areas, and our police should be there handing out tickets like candy on Halloween.

    1. Agree! We live on Grand and it's used as a race track by many. My main concern is someone killing my kids while they play in our yard. Cops need to be present on Grand. It's getting ridiculous

  3. Don't pass judgment before knowing the details. I know the woman who crashed into the house. She a sweet elderly woman. It wouldn't surprise me if she had a medical emergency that caused her to accelerate and swerve off road. I say this from experience- about five years ago a school bus crashed into my front yard (I currently live in Virginia). The driver had a heart attack just minutes after dropping off kids at school. The bus accelerated and he crashed into a huge tree in my yard. That being said, it wouldn't surprise me if something similar happened in the crash.
