Police in central Ohio say a father faces a charge of endangering children after his 10-year-old daughter got behind the wheel of an SUV and crashed it into a home.

Lancaster police reported that the man said he was teaching his daughter to drive when she lost control of the SUV Monday night.
 
The man was able to get his daughter out of the vehicle before it went down a hill, hit a parked car and crashed into the house.
 
The homeowner said the crash sounded like an explosion.
 
Nobody was hurt.
 
The father was ordered to appear in court later to face the charge of endangering a child.
