A vehicle hit a home on East 4th Avenue Wednesday afternoon around 4:30 p.m.
Police said the crash occurred on at 624 East 4th Avenue, near Cleveland Avenue.
A woman and two female children were inside of the SUV that crashed into the home.
"We be hearing a lot of screeching and at some point we're hearing a boom," said renter Twanna Goodrum.
Inside the home, Goodrum was blind to what was coming. Outside, her niece stared in horror.
She was about to run to her aunt's house from her grandmother's across the street.
"The car ran through that yard then basically was in the air and just drove into the side of the house," said Natalya Geiger.
Goodrum's four kids saw it too as they helped grandma make dinner. Fear spread through the bunch, knowing mom was on the other side of the SUV.
"It just sounded like a bulldozer hitting the house," said Natoria Dillard Goodrum. "I felt mad and sad."
Goodrum was in the kitchen.
"When she came into the home, she actually flew into the kitchen," said Goodrum.
Goodrum was a little banged up and bruised, but okay. The driver was shaken, but alert and standing.
She was taken to the hospital along with two kids riding in the SUV.
Firefighters set to work fixing what they could on the home. The sight brought back memories for Goodrum.
"When we were young, growing up, we watched them build this house," Goodrum said.
It was a Habitat For Humanity home. Goodrum has lived on the block her whole life. She moved into the home three years ago.
"We're scrambling right now to get materials to board the house up to secure it," said Habitat CEO E.J. Thomas.
In the meantime, Goodrum's a little lost.
"I don't have the slightest clue of what I'm going to do or where I'm going to go," she said.
Thomas says Habitat plans to fix the home and find Goodrum and her family temporary housing.
