Homeowner in Louisiana grateful to be alive after car slams into her home


LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)- Jackie Andrus says she is lucky to be alive.

Early Sunday morning Andrus says she was awakened when a car drove into her house.

“We were in bed, sleeping. It happened around 3 a.m. There was a big bang and we had no idea what happened.”

Looking at the damage in her front yard, her emotions come across and with tears in her eyes, she explains the toll this now puts on her family.

“I don’t know the next step now. I need, we need all the help right now,” she said.

Her neighbor and sister, Melissa, says the damage is extensive but things can be replaced.

She says she is just grateful her sister is alive and unharmed.

“I thank God they are here. It could have been much worse after looking at everything.”
