SPARKS, Nev. (KRNV & -- A 38-year-old woman driving on 4th Street in Sparks had her car door fly open, and when she went to close it, she accelerated and crashed into a home, according to Sparks Police.

The home she ran into was located at 2081 4th Street. Police say a 17-year-old male was outside at the time and sustained head injuries after being hit. He was transported to Renown with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police do not believe alcohol to be a factor in the crash, but are looking into possible charges against the driver.

Currently the southbound lane at 4th Street and Richards Way is closed due to the incident.

possibly if she had just accelerated, it would have closed itself from the force
