SPEERS (KDKA) – Two children were injured when their vehicle slammed into the porch of a house in Washington County Tuesday morning.
According to officials at the scene, the incident happened in the 100 block of Grandview Way in Speers around 11 a.m.
A young couple and two children were in the car when it reportedly stalled while traveling down a hill. They had just pulled out of their driveway on Arlington Avenue.
The couple got out to push and the car took off and crashed into the porch of a home nearby.
“Well, I heard a loud bang. When I came out, I heard the parents chasing the car screaming,” neighbor Janet Pearson said.
The car struck David Krutz’s deck. He has 11 cameras placed around his house and caught everything on video.
The car rolled about 500 yards, hit the deck of Krutz’s house, and then went over a small hill, coming to rest on the street.
“All I heard was a little 4-year-old girl screaming. When they pulled her out, she was already getting a black eye. I called 911,” Pearson said.
The other child was an infant in the backseat of the station wagon.
Both of the kids were flown to UPMC Children’s Hospital.
“I think God had to be there to save them, because they really traveled a distance to land where they did,” Pearson said.
The video also shows many of the neighbors coming out to help.
Both parents went to the hospital with the children, but there’s been no word on their condition. Neighbors say the mother kept saying she was sorry.
