Car Slams Into City Heights Home, Damages Teen's Bedroom

A City Heights teenager getting ready for school Friday morning narrowly missed being injured when a car crashed into her bedroom.

Frida Gonzalez was in the bathroom just before 6:30 a.m. when she heard the sound of a crash in her bedroom.

She ran to her brother’s bedroom to check on him. Once she knew her brother was safe, she ran into her room and saw a hole in the wall.

“All my stuff was in there, on the floor,” Gonzalez said.

By the time she ran outside, the vehicle was gone.

A large hole was on the outside of the house on Van Dyke Avenue.

It appears the car drove into a fence and then hit the side of the house.

The driver initially left the scene but returned and exchanged information with the residents, police said.

No one was injured in the crash.
