Man injured, 2 homes damaged after driving lesson gone wrong


It happened Sunday afternoon on Prairie Ridge in southwest Houston. Neighbors say a man was teaching his wife how to drive when she put the car in reverse and ran over him on the driveway. She then hit a car on another driveway.

The impact pushed the car into a pickup, and the pickup into the wall of the garage. Neighbors say the woman panicked, reversed again and drove through a front yard and right into another home.

"I just heard a big bang. And that was it. Ran out here to check what happened and saw a car through the house," said Marlon Rodas.

The home has a gaping hole and a pile of debris to clean up, but no one was hurt. The husband who was run over is in the hospital.

Police say they're still trying sort out exactly what happened before considering charges.
