Two homes in Antioch will need major repair after an out-of-control car smashed into them.

It happened just before 12:00 a.m. on Buchanan Road on Friday night.

Police say the driver went over the center divider into oncoming traffic and smashed an electrical transformer. The car went through a garage before landing on its roof in the yard of a house next door.

Neighbors were startled by the crash, but not one man's mom whose bedroom was damaged.

"I walked in there to check to see if she was okay," Antioch resident Kyle Boone said. "Asked her if she was okay, she said 'yeah' and went right back to sleep."

The crash caused a brief loss of power to nearby residents.

No injuries were reported and there's no word yet if drugs or alcohol contributed to the crash.
