Police are investigating a hit-and-run involving a house. 

It happened in a residential neighborhood at the corner of Parkside Lane and Fairfield Street off of North 1st Street around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday. 

A neighbor at the scene said she was talking on the phone when a car flew by her home, hitting a house just yards away. The neighbor thought the car was going about 50 mph, trying to curve left. She rushed to the crash and saw two men flee from the vehicle before authorities arrived. 

Fire and Rescue officials said the car caused significant damage as it rammed into a corner of the home and into a basement room. They said it broke the house's main water line, forcing crews to remove items from the basement to prevent further damage. They also say there could be a gas leak in the home, which is why officials aren't allowing the residents to stay there until it has been completely fixed. 

Lincoln police searched for the hit-and-run suspects while LFR crews worked. Multiple neighbors in the area said they saw police arrest two men Tuesday night near the crash. Channel 8 has yet to confirm whether those suspects are linked to this case.
