SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Sheboygan residential neighborhood is shaken up after a crash kills two people and injures two others, one of them just a child. 

The crash was all captured on a home surveillance camera. 

"I was in the house and it sounded like something came through the wall."

Carrie Ward's security cameras recorded the deadly crash in her front yard near South 10th Street and Georgia Avenue at 9:30 Wednesday morning. 

The video shows the first car hit a tree and a car parked in the street. Ward says it was her car that was hit.

"First off, I see my car was totaled and I was like 'Oh, God' and so I ran outside and then I see the person in the front seat was unconscious," Ward said. 

Sheboygan police say two people died on the scene: a 27-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man who was driving. Police say both of them are from Sheboygan. 

"It is not normal for us to have crashes that are this severe in a residential neighborhood," said Sgt. Joel Kuszynksi. 

Two other passengers in the car, a 30-year-old woman and a 4-year-old child, were hurt and taken to the hospital. 

Police say speed may have caused the crash. 

"If someone is driving a high rate of speed in a residential neighborhood, yes it is dangerous," said Sgt. Kuszynski. 

"It just blows my mind. I don't know how the car could have been going that fast though, from the corner to here," Ward said. 

Neighbors stood nearby to watch the scene get cleared up. 

"I have insurance. I can replace my car. They can't replace their lives," Ward said. 

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
