FRANKLIN FURNACE, Ohio (WSAZ) -- The Portsmouth Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a late-night crash in Franklin Furnace that ended with a car hitting a home.

Troopers say it happened just after 11:30 Monday night along Haverhill-Ohio Furnace Road.

Troopers say the driver veered off the right side of the roadway, overturned, and the car hit the home.

The driver was thrown out of his car, suffering multiple injuries.

He was life-flighted to the hospital.

A woman inside the home was injured.

She was treated at the scene.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Trent Thompson says situations like these are intense.

“It’s got to be a scary moment ... You would never imagine a car crashing into your house while you’re just sitting there watching TV,” Thompson said.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash.

“Any time alcohol is involved and somebody is injured it kind of increases the charges,” Thompson said.

Troopers say the crash remains under investigation.
