Three people were hurt, one seriously, after a car went off the street, hit a fence and crashed into a house.

Captain John Corbelli, of the Rochester Police Department, tells News10NBC that crash happened around 11:30 p.m. Friday night on Strong Street near the intersection of Hollenbeck Street on the city's north side.

Based on their investigation, police say a 25-year-old male driver was headed south on Hollenbeck Street, at a high rate of speed, when he lost control of his vehicle and went off the road at Strong Street.

Officers say the car hit a chain link fence, and a piece of metal tubing impaled the windshield and hit the driver in the chest. He was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital by Rural/Metro. Police say he is currently in "critical but stable condition."

The car struck a house near the intersection, according to officers, and came to a rest on the east side of that house.

Capt. Corbelli also says two people, who were apparently sitting on the porch of that residence, were also hit in the crash. They suffered leg injuries, according to police, and were taken to Rochester General Hospital for treatment.

The investigation is ongoing, but speed appears to be a factor in the crash. Police say charges are pending.
