A 22-year-old driver plowed into a home on the 1000 block of Washington Thursday morning after losing control of his vehicle.
According to Alice Police Officer Cristobal Gonzalez, Juan Antonio Cortez Jr. was traveling south on Maple Street when he disregarded a stop sign and lost control.
Officers believe Cortez was the driver of a white Expedition.
Cortez hit the fire hydrant before he struck the corner of the house off its foundation and left a large hole.
Gonzalez stated that a witness told officers there were two people in the vehicle. However, only Cortez was located.
No one was home at the time of the accident. The homeowner arrived at the residence to find first responders and a vehicle on his property. He became irate when he learned the driver had no insurance.
After the accident, Cortez ran, but was located by Alice Fire Marshal Patrick Thomas on Lincoln and Cameron.
According to Officer David Valadez, who arrived on the scene with Thomas, Cortez had a laceration under his left eye and was rambling.
Police said alcohol was not a factor.
Cortez was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Cortez will be cited for no driver's license, no insurance and disregarding a stop sign.
