Family escapes injury after car crashes into house
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — It was a rough night for an East Memphis family after a car came crashing into their home.
Police say a 16-year-old driver lost control of his car near Kimball Rd. and Wanda St. late Monday night and crashed into a nearby home.
The homeowner told WREG that she was reading a book when the car came barreling into her home — missing her by a few feet.
Incredibly, despite all the damage to the home, no one inside was injured.
The driver was taken to the hospital due to eye injuries caused by flying glass — but he’s expected to recover.
There’s no word yet on whether the teenager will face charges for the crash.
