WESTBY, Nassau County (WABC) – An uncontrollable truck drove through several rooms of Westbury’s house, over a fence and stopped in a neighbor’s yard.

The driver of the Chevy Silverado failed to drive and crashed into a house on Cypress Lane around 12:50 p.m. on Thursday.

The truck crashed into a room of the house, including the one where the teen was sleeping.

The truck pulled over the fence and stopped in a neighboring yard.

Miraculously, no one was hurt.

But that truck moved inches from the 13-year-old boy’s bed.

“I went to my son’s room and saw there was a hole. I didn’t know that a car had passed there, ”said Tha Pham, the boy’s mother. “I went to see what happened to my son. He was only in one leg … My son just woke up and everything was on him. “

After the accident, repair work was carried out.

It was not immediately clear when the family would be allowed back.

The driver fled on foot but was detained nearby.

Charges against him await.
