Then he heard the crash and rushed out to find a car had hit the house behind, going in through the kitchen.

He said his grandfather and grandmother, who he lived with in the front house, were in the car but were thankfully okay.

"It just happened so fast."

The damaged house belonged to his parents and while people were home, no one inside the house was injured.
