Drunk driver crashes into Urbana home

URBANA--It was a rude awakening around 2 AM Saturday, when a driver misjudged a fork in the road, jumped a curb, and crashed into an Urbana house, all while allegedly driving drunk.

Authorities say Seung Hoon Lee was driving down toward the 2800 block of East Main Street early Saturday morning, when he did not follow the curve in the road.

Lee veered off the street into the yard at 2812 E. Main, ran through a tree, and then slammed his 2010 Mercedes into the side of the home.
Lee was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital to be checked out and tested for blood alcohol content.

He was also cited for driving under the influence.

A sergeant with the Champaign County Sheriff's Office, whose deputies responded to the scene, says he did not know of any injuries reported from the person who was at home during the crash.

Firefighters from the Edge Scott and Carroll fire protection districts assisted in the response.
