Car drives into bedroom as KY woman sleeps


Deputies say it's "amazing" a 90-year-old woman wasn't injured when a car barreled into her bedroom.

It happened just before 6 p.m. Friday on McKendree Church Road.

According to McCracken County deputies - 54-year-old Richard Baldwin on Cunningham, Kentucky was driving north when he began to have a coughing fit and lost control of the car.

The car ran off the road, right into the house at 2160 McKendree Church Road.

Deputies say the vehicle made it half-way through the spare bedroom where 90-year-old Mary Meyer was laying down.

Deputies say Meyer was not injured.

No word on whether Baldwin will be ticketed for the crash.
