Driver crashes through apartment, lands on a woman's bed

Posted: Updated:

A driver crashed through the wall of an Evansville apartment and landed on a woman's bed.

The crash happened on the 1400 block of East Franklin.

14 News was the only news crew on the scene.

The woman inside the apartment says she was lying down for a nap when the wall exploded and a full size Chevy Suburban came to rest on the foot of her bed.

Tonia Thompson says the woman who crashed said she swerved to avoid hitting a stray cay and lost control.

Thompson also says the whole thing was a very close call.

"I was very lucky," says Thompson. "I had moved in a month or so ago."

The driver was field tested and taken into custody.

Thompson says her home is unlivable and that she'll be moving into another apartment in the same complex.
