LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Two people could be displaced after a car smashed into their home Friday evening.
It happened around 9 p.m. when a car lost control and slammed into a Lafayette housing duplex on Harper Drive near Creasy Lane.
Witnesses say that the driver of the car hit a different car in the neighborhood, drove off and crashed into the home. The driver of the car and a passenger were seen fleeing the scene.
Dylan Johnson was one of two residents were in the living room when it happened.
"Truthfully I thought it was a straight tornado because earlier we went out and it was raining hard," says Johnson. "We were like, 'we haven't been out for a while, it must have gotten bad,' so we jumped in the tub. From there, I thought I might go check it out and see what was going on. We went out there and the car was in the room."
The owner of the duplex called a maintenance unit to inspect the house. She says the renters will have a place to stay if their home is deemed unsafe to stay in, our sister station WLFI reports.
