I saw the car go down the road at high speed and then I heard a loud bang,” the man who lives next door, who was the first to arrive at the scene of the accident, told FOX News. “The vehicle went the length of the house, coming to a stop at the back end. When I got there, I noticed that the car’s windows were broken, so I opened its back door, trying to help her. At first she didn’t respond to the shouts, and her silence worried me. However, he later replied to me saying that it was not good. After a few moments, firefighters arrived and pulled her out of the car after making sure they had extinguished most of the fire.“, the neighbor explained, adding that he helped the person living in the house to leave it after the collision.
