The Waterloo Police Department and Waterloo Fire Department responded about 2 p.m. Thursday to 300 Columbia Avenue after a vehicle struck a house.

A red Chrysler Town & Country driven by Alvin Rice, 80, who lives just a block away, was apparently traveling south on Evansville Avenue when it went straight across and into the house where John and Michael Wilson reside, police said. A medical emergency may have led to the crash.

Columbia EMS transported Rice by ambulance to Saint Louis University Hospital.

The impact of the collision resulted in the house being pushed back off its foundation, police said, and some shingles buckled on the roof.
