A Texas couple escaped injury Sunday morning when a C5 Corvette crashed into the brick wall of their bedroom.
The homeowner, whose identity was changed to Kelly for her protection during a report by KRGV-TV, says she and her husband were in their bed after the Anniversary Red Corvette crashed into the wall of their home in McAllen.
A home surveillance video shows the Corvette in the yard just after the crash. “She finally lands in front of the camera right here in front of the camera of the guest bedroom, and she finally made her last fall here,” says the homeowner. “We do have the Corvette’s bumper in the master bedroom.”
The driver, Myra Edith Longoria, was not injured but faces charges of driving while intoxicated, possession and use of a volatile chemical, and possession of drugs. Oh, and her Corvette was banged up pretty badly in the crash, too.
The homeowner blames a dangerous curve next to her house for causing the crash and showed the TV crew a photo of a cement truck that flipped in the same curve just last week.
“We don’t feel safe due to the fact that we don’t have any cement barriers or railings to protect other vehicles from coming into our property,” Kelly says.
Now, she’s hoping the city of McAllen will do something to help protect her family.
“We love the city of McAllen. We just want to feel safe to sleep in our own home,” she said.
City officials say they are investigating the issue, while police continue to look into the cause of the crash.
