A car crashed into the master bedroom of a home in north Houston Friday evening, leaving a gaping hole behind.

According to the homeowner, the Ford sedan was racing down JFK Boulevard when the driver lost control and plowed into the back brick wall of the home. But the car didn't stop there.

It took out an air conditioning unit before crashing into a tree in the front of the home.

The driver and passenger were injured and taken to the hospital.

The homeowner said this isn't the first time a car has come crashing onto his property and his neighbors' homes as well.

"This street is really bad about people speeding down it," said homeowner Josh Kibby. "This house alone has had numbers of cars come into the yard. This is the first time it's ever hit the house. There are other houses on this corner that have been hit quite a few times."

The homeowner wasn't in the master bedroom, where the car struck, at the time of crash, and plans to stay with relatives for now. He said the driver and passenger were in their early 20s.
