“I was in my bedroom and I heard a crash,” said homeowner Charlin Hinds. “My husband was sitting on the couch, I ran out and hollered for him and he didn’t say nothing so I panicked then I looked over and I seen the truck in my living room.”
Police say the driver took off from the scene before they arrived. Hinds told FOX 17 she didn’t get a good look at the suspect.
“I’m really shook up, I’m really hurt because I didn’t think this could happen to me ,” said Hinds. “You see it on tv but [not] in real life like this, so I’m shaken up.”
Hinds and her husband were not hurt and will be staying in a hotel for the time-being.
