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.

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.
