(One photo attached, other photos available on Clearwater Fire & Rescue Facebook page)

Clearwater Fire & Rescue Crews worked a two-vehicle accident this afternoon at

Lake Avenue and Lakeview Road.

Two people suffered minor injuries in the crash. One of the cars sideswiped a

house after the initial impact and came to rest partially upon a palm tree.

Firefighters had to stabilize the car that was against the house before they

could extricate the driver inside.

No one in the home was injured. The home did not appear to sustain any damage

as it was a glancing blow.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. Further details on the

crash would come from that agency.
