Posted at 10:51 AM, Mar 03, 2016

Several residents in Batavia were rattled out of their beds early Thursday morning after a car crashed into a utility pole and slammed into the side of a house on Oak Orchard Road.

The impact sheared off a porch and ruptured a gas line. Firefighters were able to shut the gas off minutes after the crash.

No one inside the home was hurt.

The driver of the car, 23-year-old Joshua McGuire of Albion, suffered only minor injuries.

He is charged with DWI.
