Albany- The front end of a car is the only thing holding up Patricia Jones's Pine Bluff Road home. Around 4 AM its driver drove it straight into the front of her mobile home.

"I'm still shaking. It's just scary," Jones says.

She says what sounded like a bomb exploding woke her and her family out of their sleep.

"So, we got up to see what it was. My daughter was asleep, she woke up too. She was asking me what it was so we looked out the door and it was a car," says Jones.

The driver was still inside when he hit the house. He was able escape injury, but didn't escape being charged. Jones says police arrested the driver for DUI.

"The floor is buckling, my air conditioning went out it's got no power. I've got no electricity; it's getting warm in there. My plumbing is shot," explains Jones.

Now the family will have to evacuate. Though she's left with a big mess, Jones says she's just glad the damages were to the house and not the people inside.

We did contact Albany police, but were unable to find out the identity of the driver nor charges against them.
