A van struck a home and flipped onto it in Reynoldsburg Tuesday afternoon.
The crash was reported in the 9000 block of Summit Road around 4:45 p.m.
Mary Garrison was inside the house.
"It just sounded like the sky was falling in. It just sounded like something I never heard before," said Garrison.
With a shaky voice, Garrison described a harrowing evening. "I was sitting in the rocking chair watching Dr. Phil," she said.
All of a sudden, a car landed on its front grill and thudded into the home. Garrison's grandson ran into the room in a panic.
"I thought he'd been hurt because there was such fear on his face," Garrison said.
He was fine but Garrison feared for the person in the car.
"It hit down and I was looking for the driver," said Garrison. "He was lying there in the yard just beyond the sidewalk there."
The man tried to move but witnesses rushed in to keep him calm until rescue crews arrive.
The Licking County Sheriff's Office says the car was speeding. It veered off the road, hit a rock, and went end over end.
"I'm okay. I'm just shook up, you know," said Garrison.
Garrison and her grandsons are left with a mess to clean up and a mix of emotions.
"I thank God. Just for the grace of God, we're okay," said Garrison. "And I keep that guy in my prayers, he was really messed up bad. Homes can be rebuilt, lives can't."
The West Licking Fire Department says the driver is in serious condition.
He suffered head trauma and facial fractures.
