Update: McKenzie says the car went down the hill and took out three brick columns that were supporting the carport, but it didn’t hit the house itself. However, crews are taping the house off because of the loss of structural integrity.

Part of the car is hanging off some steps to a lower part of the property. Huntsville police are working to locate the homeowner.

McKenzie says the driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
