A family got a rude awakening overnight when a car slammed into their home.Witnesses say around 1:45am, the driver of a car travelling northbound on Cheeves at Annunciation just couldn't or didn't hit the brakes in time. The car careened over the driveway and into an exterior brick wall.

Luckily, none of the people inside was hurt and the damage was worse outside than in. Next door neighbor Sarah Wells heard the crash and ran outside, thinking someone had hit her car.

"And then I saw the car up in the house and I started calling her. 'Claudia! Somebody ran up into your house.' I didn't see them. They had jumped out and ran," she said.

The driver is still at large. Three homes on this street have been damaged in similar fashion in the past. Residents want the city to put up a speed bump or reflectors.
