DENVER — A Suburban drove into the front door of a home in the Montbello neighborhood of Denver after its brakes apparently failed Wednesday afternoon.

The incident occurred on the 4900 block of Billings Street at approximately 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, witness Amy Dodd told Channel 2 News.

Dodd said it appeared as if the vehicle’s breaks failed or the driver lost control of the car, causing the driver to plow through an intersection and collide into the front door of a nearby home.

She added that the house was empty at the time of the accident, but the structure sustained some serious damage.

Firefighters responded to the scene to survey the damage.
