Car crashes into Fort Worth home

Posted: Updated:

A Fort Worth family was awoken overnight when a car crashed into their home.

It happened shortly after midnight at a home near Loop 830 and Jacksboro Highway.

The driver of the Chevy Lumina was seriously injured. He was taken to Harris Methodist Hospital.

Five adults and three children were in the home at the time of the crash. A mother and her twin 2-year-old boys were in the room where the car struck. The boys were not injured. The mother only suffered minor injuries from furniture that was knocked across the room.

Police said the man lost control while driving, crashed through a backyard wrought iron fence, and into the rear of the home.  

A man in the home said the car was still running right after the crash, and the driver was unconscious. He broke a car window to get the driver's foot off the gas and turn off the car.

Besides hitting the house, the car was also pinned up against a tree. The crash shut off power to the home.

The Red Cross responded and is helping the family with shelter and food.

Firefighters covered the hole with plywood.
