A Colorado Springs man was hospitalized early Saturday morning after police say he drove into a home.

The driver, identified as Andrew Horan, didn't make the curve as westbound Palmer Park snaked past the Union intersection, and drove through three yards, hit a tree, then crashed into a house on the 1700 block. After the crash, Horan was trapped inside his car and had to be cut out.

According to police, Horan was "very uncooperative" while officers assisted him at the scene. He was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and could face DUI charges for the incident. Drinking and speeding are both considered factors in the crash.
