(KAIR)--A car crashed into an Atchison house Thursday afternoon, causing no injuries, but left property damage in its wake, and the Atchison driver cited and arrested.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, the crash happened around 1:00 in the afternoon, when an SUV, driven northbound in the 800 block of South 5th Street by Gregory Denton, went out of control. The SUV left the roadway, where it crashed into a fence, and then into the house, located on the west side of 5th Street.

Wilson, in the release, says Denton was cited for driving while revoked in connection with the crash. However, the report from Wilson also shows that Denton was arrested on an Atchison County District Court warrant for failure to appear in court.

Following his arrest, Denton was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
