MAPLE HEIGHTS -- Members of a Maple Heights family had to be rescued early this morning after a car slammed into the home.

Firefighters say the car nearly collapsed the home. Two people had to be rescued from an upper floor after a staircase was badly damaged by the car's impact.

The crash caused a gas leak, resulting in neighboring homes being evacuated as well.

The crash was reported before 3 a.m. on Rockside Road near East 141st Street.

The driver struck a utility pole before running into the home.

The people inside the home were not hurt but were shaken up by the incident.

A man inside the car was treated and released from the hospital.
