SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury police are investigating a "domestic-related" incident after they say a car hit a home early Wednesday morning.

The homeowner said she was sleeping when the crash happened just before 1:30 a.m. She said she woke up to a burning smell, then went outside to find a car had hit the side of her home on Washington Street.

Police said two cars were involved in the incident. Neighbors said they saw the two cars chasing each other down Eastern Shore Drive, then saw one of the cars hit the curb at the intersection at Washington Street, knocking over the stop sign, and then hitting the side of the home.

Tire skid marks could be seen in the grass leading up to the home Wednesday morning, and damage could be seen to the home's wooden panels.

Police said the driver of the car that hit the house, a woman, was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. A man who was a passenger in that car, appeared to be uninjured, according to neighbors. Police said the driver of the other car involved was arrested, but specific charges were not known Wednesday morning. Police did not release the names of anyone involved.

The specifics leading up to the crash are still under investigation, but police did call the incident "intentional" and "domestic-related."

Police said the home was temporarily condemned Wednesday morning until inspectors could come out later in the daylight to further assess the damage. The homeowner was staying with friends. She said the inside framework of the home looked fine. She added she was happy no one was seriously injured.
