An out of control car slammed into a light pole in Channelview overnight and caused part of one man's house to shake.

Three people were injured when the car crashed on Becker and Ridlon. Police say the driver of a Chevy Impala was speeding and tried to pass another car. But the driver lost control on a curve, sending the car into a ditch and into a light pole.

One man who lives nearby says he not only heard the accident, but felt it, too.

"It was total silence until I heard a big thud and vibrations under my feet," said resident James Plair.

The fire department rescued two men and a woman from inside the vehicle. All three are expected to survive.
