Clearwater, Florida -- Shattered glass, twisted rebar, and concrete dust is all that's left of the front of a Clearwater home after a car plowed through. Neighbors heard the boom.
"It was pretty bad. The front of the house is slammed in," said a neighbor.
The owner inside at the time, an elderly woman, only received minor injuries from flying glass. Her home, however, is in need of major attention.
"Our biggest problem here after treating the citizen inside the house was shoring the building up because it was getting ready to collapse," said Kent Watts of Clearwater Fire Rescue.
Work crews are bringing in support and plywood to close up the gaping hole. A close-knit neighborhood, friends were stunned as they stop by to check it out.
"I thought there was an explosion, like a stove or something like that," said neighbor Jeri Miller.
FHP tells 10 News the driver simply fell asleep. He said he's been working a lot, and the next thing he knew he was sitting inside the house. He's been charged with careless driving.
