A neighbor, whose father-in-law owns the parked car, said she was sleeping in the front room of their home when she heard a crashing sound. She didn’t think much of it until she heard the Police and saw their lights flashing outside of her home.

The apparent high-speed driver had struck her father in laws car that was parked in front of her home. “I’m just glad she didn’t hit our house cause I sleep right here in the front corner bedroom.”
