A South Haven home was struck by an SUV early Thursday morning, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police said.

According to police, at 5:57 a.m. Joseph Tanner, 33, of Portage, crashed through the home, in the 600 block of Newport Road, where an infant girl and her parents were sleeping.

The infant was transported to Porter Portage Hospital Campus “to be checked out,” police said.

Tanner and his passenger were transported to St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

“Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash and toxicology testing was performed,” police said. “The results are pending.”
