Car hits house, killing driver



A car crashed into a house and rolled down an embankment New Year's Eve, killing the driver, the Washington County Sheriff's Department said.

The occupants of the house at 12606 Independence Road in Clear Spring were not hurt, police said.

The crash was the only fatal accident this holiday weekend in the Tri-State area.

James Matthew Valliere, 24, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 9:10 p.m. accident, police said. His address was unavailable Monday.

Police don't know why Valliere's Ford Probe ran off the road at a V-intersection, traveling straight through the yard and into the house.

After hitting the house, the car rolled down an embankment and landed on top of another vehicle, police said. Valliere was found under the car, police said.
