UNION COUNTY, IL (KFVS)- A teenage driver is recovering after he loses control of his car on Lick Creek Road on Monday afternoon.
Police say the 18-year-old driver left the roadway and ended up crashing into the front bedroom of the Sloan family's home.
"I was standing out here on the porch working on getting the rust off this strap when I heard squealing tires," said Paul Sloan. "I looked up the road and seen him coming. I thought he was going to hit the porch. And I was going to try to get on the roof as quickly as possible."
But, there was no time for Sloan to do anything but hang onto whatever he could as the car smashed into his house.
"That car moved this house. My door is sitting two feet further back then where it was," Sloan said.
The impact of the car crashing into the front wall of the trailer knocked furniture over in the living room. And the frame of the home off of it's cinder blocks.
