Vehicle Crashes Into House

The driver and his two passengers suffered only minor injuries after the vehicle crashed into a house in Stearns County Sunday afternoon.

The Sheriff’s Office says a passerby reported that a car had drove into a residence on County Road 7 in St. Augusta.

Deputies arrived on the scene and observed the vehicle inside the house on the south side.

It was determined that the vehicle was traveling westbound on County Road 44 approaching the T-intersection to County Road 7 and did not stop and continued through the intersection, striking a tree, and then into the house.

The driver was identified as 22-year-old Theodore Wolden of St. Cloud. His passengers were identified as 19-year-old Brianna Barton and 21-year-old Korben Wolden, also from St. Cloud.

Authorities say nobody was inside the residence at the time of the crash.
