Authorities: Man driving stolen car hits home, sparking fire

Democrats brushed aside months-long divisions and pushed their expansive social and environment bill through a divided House on Friday, as President Joe Biden and his party moved closer to capitalizing on their control of government by funneling its resources toward their top domestic priorities. The House approved the legislation by a near party-line 220-213 vote, sending the measure to a Senate where cost-cutting demands by moderate Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and that chamber's strict rules seemed certain to force significant changes. That will prompt fresh disputes between party centrists and moderates that will likely take weeks to resolve.

NEWARK — A man driving a stolen car crashed into a home in New Jersey's largest city early Thursday, leaving the driver critically injured and sparking a fire that damaged the home, authorities said.

The single-vehicle crash occurred shortly before 4 a.m., police said.

The driver, who was alone in the car, was taken to a hospital where he was being treated for undisclosed injuries. His name was not released.

No one in the home was injured, authorities said. Firefighters extinguished the fire in about 30 minutes.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
