Homeowner Grace Fierro had just gone to bed 15 minutes earlier.
“I didn’t hear anything. The thing that I woke up to, that it had thrown me, and I was stepping on all this sheet rock. So I was off the bed, and then it was so dusty, that I was trying to figure out what had happened. I didn’t know if it was an earthquake or what,” Fierro said. “Then I saw, I saw there was something outside. I realized it was a hole in the wall and I could see it was a car.”
Fierro was taken to a hospital, but somehow only suffered a bump on the head.MORE NEWS: Omicron Surge Still Raging In Southland, Despite Decline In Other Parts Of Country
