Runaway car goes airborne, crashes into two homes

GREEN BAY (WITI) -- Authorities in Green Bay continue to investigate why a runaway car ended up hitting two houses Friday night, March 7th.

One of the homes was substantially damaged when the car plowed through the living room -- and the family was inside the house when it happened.

"Went across traffic, into oncoming traffic, hit the curb, hit the garage of the first house, went airborne, hit the living room of the second house and flipped over onto its roof," described Lt. Tom Buchmann with the Green Bay Police Department.

The Red Cross is assisting the family whose home was essentially destroyed.
