Car Crashes into Anchorage House

An Alaska woman escaped serious injury by mere inches in an auto accident – while sitting in her living room today.

Nadine Lefevre of Anchorage was still in her bathrobe, sitting in an easy chair Tuesday morning when an SUV crashed through the front wall of her house. By the time it stopped, the vehicle was entirely inside her living room, and barely missed her purple chair.

Police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker says, “Someone was looking out for her.”

Authorities say the driver of the vehicle was southbound on a major thoroughfare, lost control of the SUV and went east, straight into Lefevre’s home. The driver had minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
