Car slams into home in San Jose, hit-and-run investigation underway

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- A family in San Jose is dealing with the aftermath of a car slamming into their home.

Firefighters were looking at the damage around 1 a.m. Friday near the corner of Willow Street and Westwood Drive. The homeowner says she was sleeping when a loud bang shook the entire house. She discovered a car had crashed through the front room.

"We just finished this house, a remodel about a year and a half ago, so it's just devastating," said Lisa Swenson.

We heard a huge screech and a bang and I knew it was a really big accident," said Brendan Hutchinson.

San Jose police say the driver of the car left the scene of the crash. They are investigating the incident as a hit-and-run.
