Car crashes into porch of Raleigh triplex

— A 45-year-old Raleigh woman crashed into the porch of a house on Wake Forest Road Thursday night after losing control of her car and crossing five lanes of traffic, authorities said. 

Jacqueline Vega told Raleigh police her brakes weren't working well when she lost control of her car. Vega swiped a phone pole and tree before hitting the porch of a triplex at 2034 Wake Forest Rd. 

No one was injured in the incident. Vega was charged with a safe movement violation. 

No people were displaced from the triplex because of the damage to the porch, but a City of Raleigh building inspector was scheduled to visit the property Friday to inspect the damage.
