A driver suffered minor injuries after the car she was in crashed into a home in southwest Huntsville, Thursday morning.

Emergency crews responded to the scene on Riley Road just before 8 a.m.

Firefighters said it appeared the driver overcorrected and hydroplaned into the house. The driver was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Jerry Poplin lives right next door. He said for a car slamming into a house, it was relatively quiet. "I didn't even come outside to check on it until I saw other people looking at it," he said.

The homeowners were inside when the crash happened. The wife said she's just thankful that the car didn't hit the other side of the house. That's where their bedroom is and her husband was still sleeping.
