According to police on the scene, the red car was driving too fast down the residential street when the driver lost control and crashed into the parked and unoccupied silver car. The impact was strong enough to turn the silver car sideways, police said.

The driver of the red car sustained non-life-threatening injuries, police said, so was taken to the hospital. 

This crash is still being investigated by police on scene and with the injured driver at the hospital, so it is unclear at this point what charges will face the driver or any other people that may have been in the vehicle.
