Rear-ended car accidentally remodels a home

TYLER, TX (KLTV) – A Tyler couple didn't know what to think when they discovered a car had collided with their house.

Inga Elder was rear-ended while making a right turn onto Samson Drive heading home. It was then that she was rear-ended by another woman.

Elder missed a telephone pole, stopping her forward momentum using a house.

A neighbor called Shelba Loudamy to let her know that someone had wrecked into her house. She had her husband, Tony, were there pretty quick.

Inga says she and the woman who hit her are ok. The Loudamy's kept their sense of humor about the situation.

"Heck of a way to remodel the backroom," says Tony Loudamy.

Tony adds that he will not be opening a drive-through restaurant. The Loudamy's are insured and are already making plans to repair the house
