Home, sweet home turns drive-thru overnight
OKLAHOMA CITY - El Logan is picking up the pieces after a car crashed through his bedroom wall around 2 a.m. Monday
A man driving a car fell asleep at the wheel in the 4200 block of S.E. 53rd St.
The car plowed over their fence, through their yard and slammed into the brick house, where Logan was sound asleep.
Logan and his mother, Victoria, were both home at the time of the crash.
“I didn’t know it was a car at first,” Logan said. “I have a fear of earthquakes since I’ve been here, so I didn’t know what happened.”
“Well, it’s kinda hard to imagine,” Logan’s mother, Victoria, said. “I didn’t know if we were having another earthquake. At first I thought, ‘Did my son fall out of the bed?’ All I heard was a loud crashing noise.”
While the rude awakening startled both of them, it wasn’t entirely unexpected.
“I always had a fear of somebody hitting this house with it being on the corner,” Logan said.
The car crushed the electrical box so all electricity in the house was shut off as a precaution.
“I guess we’re going to be out of power for two or three days,” Logan said. “I’m not sure if insurance is going to pay for a hotel or anything like that. So we’re back to the ice age for a minute.”
Police said there was no illegal activity involved in this accident, it was just a case of the driver being too tired to safely drive.
Police also said the driver got out of the car to check if anyone was injured and tried to help.
Despite the close call, both Logan and his mother are counting their blessings.
“God is good,” Victoria said. “I’m glad that the driver of the car wasn’t hurt, was untouched, and naturally I’m glad my son is safe because it could have been worse. And I’m just glad that everyone is safe and unharmed.”
“I’m glad I’m OK, I’m glad [my mother] is OK,” Logan said. “Got another day on earth.”
