The driver of a Tesla suffered injuries after the car veered off the road in a Miramar neighborhood and struck several parked cars before hitting a house, police said.
According to Miramar Police, the incident occurred along the 6500 block of Miramar Parkway at around 4:20 a.m., Saturday.
Surveillance video captured the moment the vehicle slammed into the residence.
“I heard the first screech, and then I got up, and that’s when we heard the total bang,” said Shyenne Medlin, who lives a few doors down. “I just saw a bunch of cars all piled up.”
“It sounded like thunder,” said area resident Micheline Ellis.
Investigators who were at the scene said the speeding driver hopped the curb, hit several trees and crashed into the parked cars before hitting the house.
A man shared the damage inside his house caused by the crash. Speaking in Spanish, he said a family member was asleep just inches from the impact.
Ellis said she had initially no idea what happened.
Back outside, cameras captured a silver sedan and a dark-colored pickup truck with extensive damage. The impact caused the truck to push up against the house.
“They don’t realize that it’s a curb. They kind of think that it’s a straight road,” said Medlin.
Medlin said the crash hits close to home because the same thing recently happened to her.
“Someone was speeding, ran in. Our car was parked vertically, hit it horizontally, and now our car is completely totaled,” she said.
Police said no one inside the home in Saturday’s crash was injured.
Meanwhile, neighbors hope the city will install reinforcement to stop crashes like this.
The Tesla was later towed from the scene.
The driver was taken to an area hospital. The severity of his injuries is unknown.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
