Family awakes to car crashing through fence, into their house
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City family was awoken to the sound of a car crashing right into their home.
It happened in the 3200 block of N.W. 39th St. around 11:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Police say a woman was driving while intoxicated and took a turn going too fast.
She ended up plowing through a fence and then crashed into the garage of a home.
Three young girls and their parents were in the home at the time of the crash.
“We were all back in the room and you just hear a screeeech and then boom!” said Caitlynn Douglas.
“I’ve had a bad feeling for the last two days, this is what it was,” said Emma Douglas.
Neighbors say speeding happens too often in their neighborhood.
“There’s a strip with no stop signs and folks just take it like a race track,” said Michael Strotter. “If it had been earlier in the evening, think about what could’ve happened.”
The driver of the car was not injured but was taken to jail on DUI charges.
The family says they are also thankful their 1956 Chevy Bel-Air drag racing car was not damaged in crash.
