CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

A car landed on the front porch of a Savannah home on Monday night.

It happened Monday afternoon at the entrance to Laurelwood - right off of Quacco Road. We do not yet know what caused the car to crash into the home, but from what can be seen in the video, the porch had to be rebuilt.

There was also damage to the window and door.

We caught up with one woman who was actually sitting on the porch when it happened.

“The lady came out and hit the sign and landed on the porch. I'm lucky I didn't get hit. I got up. I screamed from the top of my lungs,” said S. Washington, witnessed crash.

"The first thing that went through my mind was 'it could have been me.' And this whole house could have been wrecked and the car could have blew up,” said Robert Whitfield, inside home at time of crash.

Whitfield tell us and everyone inside the home was not hurt. He also tells us the driver of the car only suffered minor injuries.
