It happened on North Clayton Street near Lancaster Avenue shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday.

A few blocks later, the driver of the SUV lost control, flipped over, jumped the curb and smashed into the front porch of a house.

The impact caused a gas line to break, causing an evacuation of several homes as a precaution.

The driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to Wilmington Hospital for treatment.
