FIRST ON 3: Car crashes through home
CLEVELAND, BRADLEY COUNTY (WRCB) - Dustin Jones escaped a near-death experience after his neighbors came crashing into his living room Monday night.
The incident happened off Charwood Trail in Cleveland.
Both Dustin and his mother, Tina Jones, felt the impact.
"It come flying through the wall and knocked me into the table and I turned around and the car was right there in the living room," Tina says.
"The whole wall just caved in and pretty much this car came through the side of the house and pinned me under it," Dustin Jones says.
Pinned and screaming for help.
The impact took out the living room wall, throwing a pile of debris all over the living room.
Police say the driver, Alicia King, was intoxicated when she jumped in her car and backed up from across the street and plowed into the house.
She told police she thought she was driving over a speed bump, but this neighborhood doesn't have speed bumps.
Dustin, trapped under the car, felt the pressure of the fireplace near his face along with the car's tires. "All the debris was on top of me." Jones said. "I had stuff bearing down on my face like glass."
Tina Jones says all she could do was scream at the top of her lungs. "There really wasn't anything I could do I just kept yelling call 911. I kept hollering be still. My son is under there."
Both Tina and Dustin Jones say they are thankful they made it out alive with a few scrapes and bruises.
King was arrested for DUI and Jones was treated for minor injuries and released.
We are told the landlord is putting the family in a new apartment.
