• Woman, grandson survive bizarre crash into home


    SEATTLE - A woman and her grandson escaped serious injury after a wild crash into a home that left a car on its side.

    The woman had just picked up her 4-year-old grandson from preschool about 2:30 p.m. Thursday when the car came around a corner and lost control in the Rainier Beach neighborhood of Seattle.

    A neighbor said the car launched into the yard of the home at 57th Avenue South and South Victor Street and then hit the house.

    The car landed on its side.

    Firefighters were able to easily remove the child from the car, but crews had to cut the roof off the Nissan to remove the 71-year-old woman.

    Neither the child nor his grandma was badly hurt but they went to Harborview Medical Center to be checked out.
