A surveillance video captured the moments a car plowed right into a home located off Southwest 13th Street and 71st Avenue in Pembroke Pines.
The homeowner’s son said the car crashed into his 17-year-old sister’s room but she had just left for the restroom at the time of the crash on Saturday afternoon.
Speaking further, he said his mother was on her couch and was thrown across the room. She suffered minor scrapes and bruises.
The woman, whose home suffered extensive damage, was there with her two kids when the car crashed into the house Tuesday filling it with smoke.
“I heard glass shatter,” said Johnier Marquez.
Johnier was in his room when he heard the crash.
“I don’t remember anything. I remember hearing something like a boom,” said the mother.
“When I stood up from the floor and opened my eyes, I thought it was an earthquake,” Marquez said.
“I saw smoke in my house and a car in my living room, and I was like, ‘What the heck?’” said her son.
“I saw a lot of smoke, a lot of dust, and everything around me was a mess,” the mother said.
“I was afraid my sister was there because it was my sister’s room,” Johnier said.
The teenage driver got out of the car, shaken but not hurt.
Mrs. Marquez was left with bumps and bruises, and she is still sore.
The family is currently figuring out how they’ll put the house back together and replace the items in the daughter’s room.
It’s unknown what charges the teenage driver will be facing as a result of the crash.
