Disabled man survives being pinned under car after it slams into Raleigh home


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man is lucky to be alive after a car pinned him inside a Raleigh home early Friday.

It happened just after midnight on James Road.

Police said the car careened through the parking lot of the Golden Gate Cathedral taking out the sign before it hit a house next door. The disabled man inside was pinned under that vehicle.

Firefighters had to call for backup to get him out. He was taken to the hospital with non-critical injuries, authorities said.

The driver was also taken to the hospital for treatment.

No word yet on what caused the accident.

Edward Jones said he was glued to WREG Friday morning where he learned what happened.

“I’ve been looking at it all morning on the news.”

He said he was shocked as the road was part of the route he takes every morning on his bike.

“It’s crazy. I haven’t seen anything like it.”

Crews spent hours on the scene boarding up the area where the car slammed into the home. A lot of debris littered the ground include bricks and other items that were once inside the house.
