Parts of the vehicle, including tires and the rear hood, littered both the front and back yard of the home, 9470 235th St., Maysville. Maysville, population 176, is located about 13 miles northwest of Davenport, and is part of the Quad Cities where I happened to live at one point.
There also were car parts inside the burned home. Skid marks leading from Maysville Road through the ditch and into the home also could be seen. The crash and fire occurred about 11 p.m. Tuesday, said Scott County Sheriff’s Lt. Tara Dinneweth. The homeowner was inside the residence when the crash occurred but she was able to escape without injury, Dinneweth said.
When firefighters from four departments arrived on scene, the house was engulfed and flames were shooting through the roof. Dinneweth said early Wednesday the cause of the crash was under investigation. She could not release any information about the driver of the car.
Our thoughts are with the family of the driver. Drive safe out there guys.
