A hit-and-run driver escaped injury when she crashed her car into a Dillsburg home early Friday morning, police said.

The 41-year-old Monaghan Township woman was stopped a block from the scene and arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, Carroll Township Police Sgt. David Smith said.

Police were called to the home, in the 300 block of Harrisburg Pike, at 4:38 a.m. after the woman's 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt crashed into it, he said.

She was taken to the county's central booking unit on suspicion of drunken driving, according to Smith.

Charges won't be filed until results of her blood-alcohol test are obtained, he said. She was taken to the booking unit to be processed, according to Smith.

No one was hurt, the sergeant said, adding a damage estimate was not immediately available.
