“I hear a huge crash, the house rumbles,” explained Meghan Lee, who was home at the time of the crash. “Yeah, we saw it coming straight for us.”

The runaway Chevy was reportedly involved in wrecks along Gallatin Road before landing into Lee’s home.

“So, there is a huge hole where our crawl space is,” explained Lee. “Everything kind of shifted that way toward the house. So, the door frame’s kind of messed up, the floor boards are messed up.”

Circumstances surrounding the crash are not known.

Authorities have only confirmed with News 2 that a woman and three kids were taken to an area hospital.

Lee now has to contact her insurance company and work to patch an SUV-sized hole in the crawl space.

“It sucks that it hit our house, but I’m glad it hit in the corner of our house,” noted Lee. “Because a lot more damage could’ve happened.”

News 2 has reached out to Metro police for updates on the passengers, or to learn of possible arrests, but we have not heard back.

The driver was later identified as 30-year-old Samantha Hughes. She was charged with child endangerment, child neglect, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license. Her bond was set at $26,500.
