SUV Crashes Through Pinellas Park Living Room

After hitting a utility pole, a Clearwater man's SUV went into the front of a home, authorities said.

According to police, early this morning two Pinellas Park residents and their dogs woke up to a vehicle driving into their living room.

A Pinellas Park Police investigation found Herbert Bireley, 57, was headed northbound on 100th Avenue when his Ford Explorer left the roadway and hit a utility pole. The SUV kept going and hit a house. The family was asleep in a bedroom and they were not injured, according to police.

Bireley was transported to a local hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Bireley was issued with citations for careless driving and driving with a suspended license without knowledge, according to police.

How do you head northbound on an east-west stretch of road?
