A family rushed to rescue a driver after a second vehicle was pushed into that family's home.

The crash happened around 3:00 Thursday morning on Homecroft Drive, just off Weber Road in north Columbus.

Police said the driver lost control and careened into the yard, hitting the vehicle parked in the driveway.

The impact pushed the second vehicle into the house, waking the family inside.

A father and son ran out of the house and saw that the driver was trapped inside the car, with smoke billowing up inside.

They used a bat and a cane to smash out the windows and free the driver.

The driver's condition was not immediately available.

The family told police they have insurance to cover the damage.
