It was a scary wake-up call for residents in north Harris County after a driver crashed into their home. The accident happened around 12:30am on Hannover Pines at Hannover Woods.

A woman was behind the wheel of a Mercury SUV when she crashed into a room being used as an office. The homeowners were asleep in another room at the time. They were stunned when they saw what happened.

"We initially though someone broke in," said homeowner Derek Sellers. "Then you hear the wheels of someone trying to peel out to leave or move a vehicle. Then we realized that somebody had run into the front our house."

The Sellers say the driver was conscious immediately after the accident. They asked her if she was OK, before calling 911.

No one was hurt. Authorities are investigating why the woman crashed into the home.
