A motor vehicle caused significant damage to a home on a La Porte County farm over the weekend.

It happened Friday night at Bureks Farm on 400 South.

According to police...it was raining when a mini van occupied by several young people went off the road and struck the house.

LaPorte County Police Capt. Mike Kellems says the driver claimed he swerved to avoid

a skunk....

And couldn't stop in the wet grass....

Kellems says a 16 year passenger in the vehicle was later taken to the hospital.

Just a few months ago.....Bureks Farm is where three year old Bubby Burek Phillips was

run over by a farm tractor

The boy has since made what seems to be a full recovery.
