A Leavenworth woman accidentally veered a car into a house as she tried to dodge a soda reportedly thrown at her by a passenger Friday afternoon, according to police.
The incident was reported shortly before 5 p.m. Friday.
A 34-year-old woman had been driving east on Spruce Street in a 1997 Ford Crown Victoria. She and her 29-year-old woman passenger apparently had just purchased large drinks at a convenience store, according to traffic Sgt. Kevin Crim, Leavenworth Police Department.
The passenger reportedly threw her drink at the driver during an argument.
The car ended up crashing into a house at 901 Columbia Ave., which is located just off of Spruce Street.
Lt. Dan Nicodemus, Leavenworth Police Department, said the car damaged a fence and caused cracks to an exterior brick wall of the house.
Nicodemus said the home was vacant, but the owner of the property was notified.
Crim said both women had been wearing seat belts.
The driver suffered a laceration to a foot.
He said the passenger apparently was still arguing with the driver as she was being treated at the scene by Leavenworth County EMS personnel.
Crim said he believes the driver was cited for having no proof of insurance.
He said an investigation is continuing and other charges are possible.
