The accident happened at about 3:15 p.m on Homestead Drive

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A woman driving on the city’s south side Thursday lost control of her car and crashed into a house.

The accident happened at about 3:15 p.m at the corner of E. Florida and Homestead avenues.

According to witnesses, the woman was driving fast when she ran a stop sign, hit another vehicle and crashed into the house.

Jeff Moore is renting the house and was just a few feet away from the white Impala when it came crashing into the corner, leaving his kitchen exposed. He was surprisingly calm after only being about 15 feet from the out control car.

“There’s another room beyond that wall. That’s where I was,” Moore said. “I cussed. I aint gonna lie to you, Stan. I cussed because it was crazy. Nothing like that I’ve ever seen before.”

Isiah Weatherspoon was in his car and saw the whole thing. First, the white Impala came through the intersection.

“As fast as she was going. I ain’t never seen nobody go that fast before,” Weatherspoon said.

The Impala then collided with a gray car, and that’s when the sequence of events started that led to the corner of the house being destroyed.

Both drivers were women. Neither was seriously injured.

Jeff Moore immediately got on the phone with his landlord trying to figure out where would be staying tonight.

A little shaken up. Shoot up and angry, yeah angry. People driving is a privilege, you know,” Moore said.

Police say the driver of the white Impala was arrested. They also say she was not drunk or high but was driving without a license and there is warrant for her arrest, though police did not know what the charges were.
