Baby dodges death as car flies into home, doesn't even cry

Baby Dodges Death As Car Flies Into Home

by
Reporter

LAKESIDE, Calif. - A speeding driver crashed her car into the bedroom of a Lakeside house, narrowly missing a sleeping baby early Thursday.

The crash in the 8800 block of Los Coches Road was reported at 2:06 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The woman lost control of her black Toyota Scion sedan, jumped a curb, crashed through a backyard fence and into a bedroom where 5-month-old Conhur Maston as sleeping in his crib. The impact pushed the crib away from the wall, but the child was not hurt.

Connor's mother, Laurie Maston, was sleeping when the crash shook the house.

'I woke up to the crash and a car horn and go to grab him, and there's stuff between me and the crib which shouldn't have been there - very scary,' Maston said. 'But we're both OK, so we're OK with that - that we have somebody looking out for us.'

Maston said the Scion driver was hysterical and complained of back pain. Paramedics took her to an area hospital for treatment of minor injuries, the CHP said. Investigators said that alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash.

What are the odds? Here in the Philly region about 50-50. Cautionary tale here folks - don't put the nursery in the garage (where it apparently was) because some drunk dingbat will drive through the wall.

Imagine all houses with saftty nets around around them. To stop moving objects in there tracks.
If all cars could bump off each other like the amusement bumper cars motorcycles bikes ect.
rubber houses that are long lasting and lighting proof. A safer would and a safer wayof life.

Glad no one was hurt! The house looks fine, you guys are so hateful over nothing. We don't all make a ton of money, in fact, some folks can't afford "normal" furniture and there is nothing wrong with using plastic drawers for storing miscellaneous clothes/toys/supplies. Additionally, it's not at all unusual that there is clutter and debris laying about. A freaking CAR came through an exterior wall. The fact that a comments about this is even taking place shows how degenerate the lot of you are. Like other here have said, get over yourself.

"The woman lost control of her black Toyota Scion sedan, jumped a curb, crashed through a backyard fence and into a bedroom..." I hope the driver was trying to stop through all of that and the brakes failed. That seems like an awful lot of motion before the car crashed into the bedroom.

grab records of her phone calls up to that time, I'm glad no one was killed. To those commentors who complain about the room being messy, really? That concerns you more than the baby? It has a loving mom, a room to itself, probably fed well, taken care of. There are millions of kids without any of this stuff!

Room was messy? HOW CAN ANYONE TELL??!! A CAR just ran into it! Everything on the wall was now on the floor, to say nothing of the wall parts scattered everywhere! Thank God no one was hurt, and the Mom is able to keep calm.

I suspect the baby was not pampered with "Oh, be quiet! We mustn't disturb the BABY." He knows that noises, sometimes LOUD noises happen, so he didn't cry! Evidence of good parenting!
