Mora and her family live on the upper level.
“I heard a big thunder, my water bottle just fell on me, and I was like, oh my gosh what is that noise,” Mora’s daughter Jasmine said.
Mora said a downstairs tenant was the first to wake up and realize what happened.
“He was like, call 911! A car hit the house!” She said.
Mora then went outside and saw the driver sitting in the car.
“His airbag had gone off, and he was okay, thank God, because you could tell he hit it really hard,” she said. “The car was really damaged, but then on his own he stood up and got out of his car.”
Mora said police got to the scene and the car was towed.
In the daylight, she got a better look at the damage.
“There’s car parts all over my lawn,” she said. “For something to come through the yards, it was really shocking.”
Mora said everyone in the house is okay. CBS 58 has reached out to West Allis police for more information.
