WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, Jan. 29, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Police are looking into whether a driver was under the influence Saturday night when his vehicle left the road and crashed into a West Valley City home.

Lt. Amy Maurer, West Valley City Police, told Gephardt Daily the crash happened at about 10:45 p.m., when an adult male was driving a Honda Accord southbound on 4800 West and went off the road.

The Accord hit a parked car, plowed into a chain-link fence, and finally came to a stop when it crashed into the foundation of a home at 4563 South.
