Car Crashes Into Home And Starts Fire

Greenville Police say they're preparing to press charges against a teen whose car slammed into a townhouse Sunday night.
Greenville Police say the resulting fire did significant damage to the townhouse at 3921 Sterling Pointe Drive in Winterville in Pitt County. Police say 16-year-old Raphael De'shon Carmon of Winterville lost control speeding around a curve and ended up crashing into the home. This was just after 10 Sunday night. Luckily no one was home, and Carmon went to the hospital after a while to get checked out. Witnesses told police there were other people in the car, but they took off running. Firefighters spent hours putting out the fire.
