A witness on scene told 21 Alive that a car went off the roadway, hit the house, driving through the kitchen and living room and then exited the house only to hit a parked car.

Investigators on scene say the home sustained extensive damage and is not safe to enter.

The owner of the home told 21 Alive that he was not there during the time of the crash. Neighbors helped the owner gather belongings and picked up debris around the home Saturday afternoon.
