FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - UPDATE (9:36p.m.) - Fargo PD is reporting that 27-year-old Damian Oldrock was driving at a high-rate of speed and rear-ended a Jeep on 4th St. N. Oldrock was driving a Chrysler Sebring, which was recently reported as stolen.

“I happen to look down the street just to see what would happen because I know there is a stop sign, a four-way stop down there and he ran right into that black Jeep and it was a very loud crash.” said Stephanie Rupard, who saw the car crash in N. Fargo.

The report states that the Jeep Wrangler was pushed off the road, rolled over once and hit an apartment complex. The driver had minor injuries from the crash, while Oldrock crashed into a house and ended up with serious but non-life threatening injuries. Joanna Wichmann was at the scene of the crash since her childhood home was damaged in the incident. She said her mother thankfully wasn’t injured.

“Kind of worried it might not be repairable some of it. It’s a really old house, just walking around and looking at the damage,” said Wichmann. “There’s a lot of damage that’s not just here that’s been done. It will be a long time before it’s livable probably.”

Neighbors in the area said they were thankful no one was on the sidewalks or the roadways when the crash happened.

“It was pretty scary. Hearing it coming down a block away you could hear something fast, loud, coming really fast. We have kids on this block, it’s scary to watch it go by.” said Rupard.

Oldrock was cited for driving under suspension and aggravated driving under restraint and reckless endangerment. FPD said charges will be forwarded to the State’s Attorney Office.

(UPDATE at 3:50p.m.) - A witness in the area said she saw a car traveling at a high rate of speed which ran into the back of a Jeep. She couldn’t see what happened to the Jeep, but did see the car careen into the house on 4th St. N.

Police responded to a crash in north Fargo on Friday afternoon, which ended with one vehicle hitting a home.

Our Valley News Live crew on the scene says it appears to be a two-vehicle crash near 12th Avenue and 4th Street North. A home was damaged after one of the vehicles hit it.

Multiple police vehicles and a tow truck responded to the scene. Neighbors tell us one of the vehicles was stolen and speeding through the neighborhood.

More information is expected to be released from the police department on Friday afternoon.
