Police: Escalade crashes through Green Cove Springs home

Green Cove Springs Police Department says the driver was arrested

CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – A sport utility vehicle crashed through a home in a Green Cove Springs neighborhood on Monday.

Officers with the Green Cove Springs Police Department responded to an argument, which led to a suspect’s SUV crashing into a residence, according to a post on the agency’s Facebook page.

“I heard a really loud bang,” said a resident of the Cove neighborhood. “I honestly thought somebody hit my car, so I ran outside.”

She said that’s when she realized a Cadillac Escalade had collided into her neighbor’s home.

“It was so bad. My dogs were freaking out. It was awful,” she said, adding that her neighbor is now staying at a hotel.

A sign reading “limited entry” could be seen on the front door of the damaged home.

“I just couldn’t believe someone had ran right into their house,” another resident said.

No one was hurt and the driver of the vehicle was arrested, the Police Department confirmed.
