The Missouri State Highway Patrol is on the scene of a crash that sent a car into a house in Cape Girardeau County, Missouri.

According to Sgt. Clark Parrott with the highway patrol, the car crashed into a house on Highway B, 2 miles north of 72.

The crash report said a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado was driven by 56-year-old William B. Branum of Fredericktown, Mo. Branum was headed northbound on Highway B.

Branum reportedly ran off the roadway through two fences and struck a woman in a house. The vehicle then continued into an outbuilding, struck a parked 2001 Ford F150  and then hit a tree.
