“I heard this sound like somebody hit something but it didn’t seem like it was the house,” he told Local 4.

The SUV had driven off Caniff Street through a field, in between two trees and right into Johnson’s home.

It took out Johnson’s back porch before stopping in the kitchen.

“I would have been in a world of trouble if I had been there,” Johnson said. “It is a field there and to do this kind of damage he had to been going pretty fast.”
