A car crashed into a house in Raleigh on Wednesday morning, bringing firefighters and EMS personnel to the 3300 block of Marshlane Way and sending the female driver to the hospital, according to authorities.

A driver whose car crashed into two houses Wednesday morning suffered some type of medical emergency before the accident, according to a police accident report.

Terrie Williams White, 48, of Raleigh was traveling straight on Marshlane Way toward Dowse Circle shortly after 7:30 a.m. when she experienced a medical emergency and began to accelerate. White’s car left the road to the right, traveled across Dowse Circle and entered the yard at 3335 Marshlane Way. The car continued up a hill and became airborne, hitting a parked car and the house. The car kept going and hit the house next door at 3331 Marshlane Way.

Police said a witness reported that the car White was driving had put on its four-way flashers and seemed to be pulling to the side of the street when it accelerated.

Police said White was reported to be in stable condition at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh.

Although the houses were occupied at the time of the accident, no one was injured, police said.
