MAYSVILLE, Iowa (AP) - Officials in eastern Iowa say a driver is dead in a late-night crash that sent a Ferrari plowing into a Maysville home and sparking an explosion and fire that destroyed the home.

The Quad-City Times reports that the crash happened around 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Scott County Sheriff’s officials say the driver died in the crash. One person was in the home at the time of the crash, but was able to escape unharmed.

Investigators say skid marks leading from Maysville Road through a ditch and into the home mark the path of the runaway car. Parts of the vehicle littered the front and back yards, including tires and the rear hood. When firefighters arrived, the house was fully engulfed in flames.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
