SAN ANTONIO – A driver crashed their vehicle into a far West Side home shortly before 5:30 a.m. Thursday waking up everyone inside, San Antonio police said.

"I thought it was a tree falling down on the house," said Ursula Walker, who lives in the home, located in the 600 block of Leafy Ridge near Stevens High School.

Walker, her son and mother all made it out of the home safely. She said because the impact caused part of her home to shift, she had to force open the door to get out.

Once outside, Walker was surprised to find out it was a car that hit her home.

The vehicle slammed into a corner of the house right near the garage, causing the home to become unstable.

Firefighters used pieces of wood to shore up that side of the house. They also help the family remove the damaged garage door, allowing them to get their vehicle out.

The driver was not hurt and remained at the scene.

San Antonio police said the crash appears to have been an accident. They did not issue the driver any citations.
