Car crashes into home in northwest Miami-Dade County
2 teens sleeping in bedroom not injured
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A car slammed into a home in northwest Miami-Dade County while three people were inside early Monday morning.
The crash happened about 1 a.m. at a house on the corner of Northwest 11th Avenue and Northwest 105th Street.
A car slammed into a bedroom where two teenagers were sleeping. No one was hurt.
"Thank God," said Abigail Beauvil, who was sleeping inside. "I don't know how we made it (out) alive, but we are good now."
Abigail Beauvil, 19, and her sister, Deborah Beauvil, 16, were sleeping when the car crashed through their room.
"The wall got a piece of me," said Abigail Beauvil. "It's on the bed and everything. It's just a miracle."
The owner of the car didn't want to talk on camera but told Local 10 News he was in the passenger seat while his friend drove the car. He said his friend must have been going about 70 mph along Northwest 105th Street when he lost control. The driver fled the scene.
Another family member told Local 10 this isn't the first time this has happened. A few months ago, a car drove into the backyard. That driver also fled.
"They always do this here because you have a bunch of, you know, junkies living around here," said family member Juno Blanc.
The car caused significant structural damage to the home. Crews carefully assessed the scene, not wanting to cause further damage to the home. A county inspector came by and posted a sign saying the home is considered unsafe.
Police have an idea about the driver's identity and said he could be charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
