A spokesperson with the Red Cross said the home was “heavily damaged.”

Teresa Brown heard and saw the crash this morning right outside of her home.

“I could have been dead,” Brown said. “I could have been dead.”

Brown said she was walking back from church before this now mangled car came crashing through her living room.

“I was about to go in the house,” she said. “But God told me no turn around go back and sit back in that chair.”

Witnesses said the car crashed into a power pole and another home as well.

“It hit the first house right there, then it hit the second house over there,” said Thomas Williams, a witness.

It was a scary scene as witnesses watched on in fear.

“When I looked out the door I could see the dust and everything,” Williams said.
