SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, OH — A teenager was trapped inside a home in Sycamore Township Monday morning after a vehicle crashed into the home.

The crash happened on the 4000 block of Limerick Ave in Dillonvale.

Rob Penny, the fire chief for Sycamore Township Fire Department, told WCPO's crew at the scene that the driver of the SUV backed up from across the street and crashed into the home. The SUV crashed through a bedroom where a teenager was sleeping.

A spokeswoman with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said the driver of the SUV suffered a medical episode and that is what caused the crash. The driver cooperated with deputies at the scene, the sheriff's office said.

According to Penny, the 19-year-old woman was trapped under debris and part of the vehicle for at least 20 minutes.

The teenager should be fine, but Penny said she was taken to UC hospital, along with the driver of the SUV. She was alert and talking to firefighters during her rescue.

Four people were inside the home when the crashed happened, Penny said.

The two children inside the vehicle were not injured, the sheriff's office said.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
