HOUSTON - The owners of a home in The Galleria area are lucky to be alive Friday after a town car turned their house into a drive-thru.
Police said the driver of the town car told them that the accelerator stuck he accidently ran his car into the house Friday morning in the 5600 block Val Verde near Chimney Rock. He had enough speed to jump a 15-foot ditch without hitting the curb.
“Just seeing how close that vehicle was to the people that were in that building was just unbelievable. I am surprised that they walked away from that,” Brian Flores, a neighbor said.
The man of the house was taken to the hospital with bumps and scrapes, but he was treated and released. The woman who lives there was not hurt, but she said that she is still in shock.
The condition of the driver was not released.
