Man crashes car through two houses
No arrests have been made, after a 93-year-old man drove his car through two homes in Tigard on Saturday afternoon.
Washington County sheriffs deputies were called to a mobile home park on Southwest Eldorado Drive, near King City, at about noon on reports of a motor vehicle accident. When deputies arrived, they found two homes with significant damage.
According to deputies, 93-year-old Jack ORourke was backing his 2012 Chevrolet Malibu out of his driveway when his shoe somehow got wedged on the gas pedal.
The car accelerated, sending the car hurtling backward through a mobile home and crashing into the home behind it.
No one was hurt in the crash. The first home the car traveled through was vacant, but ORourke barely missed hitting a person inside the second home, who was sitting in a chair in the homes living room.
The resident had left the living room to investigate the sound of the crash when ORourkes car came through his living room window.
Deputies determined driver impairment was not a factor, and deputies say an arrest is unlikely.
