SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — A Virginia man was taken to the hospital Sunday morning after the car he was driving crashed into a bedroom of a home in Shepherdstown, police said.

Gene Wilhoite, 24, was taken to City Hospital in Martinsburg, W.Va., according to a Shepherdstown Police Department news release.

A hospital spokeswoman said Monday morning that Wilhoite was not listed as a patient.

Police were called at 9:24 a.m. Sunday for a report of a car that crashed into a house at 347 W. German St., the release said. When officers arrived, they found a red Ford Fusion in a bedroom of the home.

An investigation determined that Wilhoite was driving the vehicle when it left the north side of the road and went over an embankment before striking the house, police said.

None of the occupants of the house was injured.

The Shepherd University Police Department and Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire and EMS assisted at the scene.
